I'm working on a refresh of a publication I've recently taken over, and the program needs some serious taste adjustments. The book is focused on some very specific music genres and I really feel a modern style sans fits the bill, to replace the current Gill Sans, but before I bite the bullet on finally purchasing one of my two "A-listers", I thought I'd see if I was missing a key player.
Verlag from H&FJ and Relay from FB both seem like the head of the pack here. The term is a lift from Hoefler's descrip of Verlag, and I find it to be quite right. I definitely value the breadth of options they provide (three and four widths, respectively, each in five weights plus italics) and find that essential for the task at hand.
Does anyone have any other ideas? I'd love to hear them and explore.
