A roman to go with Joos
0

Btw: Am I using the term “roman” correctly?


What would you pair with Joos? I’m thinking something with a (slightly brushy) Dutch feel to it might work. What do you think?

What kind of text do you want it for? Bodytext, captions, heads?
Btw, are the line breaks the final version? Seem a bit confusing to me; how about:
»Type is idealized writing -
yet there is no end ...«

Reminds me of Goudy's italics, so one of his romans might do.

No worries, Indra. I’m just looking for something (a serif) that could sit right next to it, at the same size and just … look right.

That’s interesting Nick. I’ll look into Goudy.

An interesting question: How should italics relate to it’s roman counterpart?

Any particular one, Nick? There’s seems to be a lot around with very varying quality.

There’s a certain brushyness about Joos, that led my to compare these two.

From the top: Joos, Dolly Roman, Dolly Italic

After due research, Village Roman; but you would have to add a slight stroke to tune up its weight to match Joos. Or slim Joos down.
