New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I feel I am too sub-amateur to even be posting here, but I need some serious typographic assistance! I'm preparing a handout (attached) for an important job talk I'm giving and I desperately want it to look professional.
The main body font must be small (like 9pt) to prevent lines of poetry from running off the page; and has to either come with MS Word 2010 or be inexpensive ($35 or less.) :( Also, some of the handout is in Greek, so I need a unicode font that will look ok with the Goudy
I chose Goudy Old Style for the Latin because it seemed old-fashioned (good for my audience of Classics scholars) and on my screen I thought it looked more readable than, say, Baskerville OF at that size. I keep switching between Palatino Linotype and Gentium for the Greek. Then Bodoni MT for the headings...is this like a rookie combining-serifs mistake? I think all the fonts should have serifs because I'm trying to keep it sort of old school , but wasn't satisfied with the way GOS looked in the headings.
Anyway, your suggestions would be so much appreciated!! Thanks in advance!
