I am working on a couple of projects at the moment. One is a children's DVD design. I am really happy with that, I chose Chaparral Pro as the typeface and did not once have any second thoughts about my choice, it just felt right. As it is a piece of coursework, I can choose my own typeface.
However, my second piece of work is different. It is a piece of poetry and I have looked at many different typefaces, including Arno, Goudy Oldstyle and Feijoa.
My finished piece of work is set in Arno Pro. This is great in that it has a great range of weights, swashes and so on, but I feel a real tug towards Feijoa. I didn't realise one could get so involved in typefaces, to the extent where they are nagging at you at the back of your mind.
I am really interested to know if others get this when choosing a typeface, and to know which typefaces "call" you the most
