Alternatives to Chronicle Display Condensed Semi?
0

Basically, we like the geometry and size of the font (numbers of characters per line) and the semibold-weight itself.

We want something classical and "stylish" but typefaces like Bodoni in Condensed versions have too thin areas.

Any suggestions?

Not exactly sure what kind of difference you’re looking for or why Chronicle is not satisfactory, but here are a few faces along those lines from the Font Bureau library:

From top to bottom (following the Chronicle sample):
Escrow Condensed Semibold
Benton Modern Display Condensed Semibold
Poynter Oldstyle Display Condensed Semibold
Whitman Display Condensed Semibold
