Any suggestions on a good display face to pair with Dante? (It's for a drop cap--Dante is too heavy.) Also, any suggestions about a good sans-serif pairing with Dante? (I recognize that there is a school of thought in which pairings should be similar, and another in which pairings should be dissimilar. Either kind of suggestion is welcome.)
I am looking for a book or any kind of printing that uses the hand set version of Dante.
What hand set means here is the first version of Dante, not the Monotype version.
I heard that Martino Mardersteig actually did not like Monotype version, thus I want to compare each other.
(However, if this is true, I cannot explain why Giovanni based the Monotype Dante for Valdonega project.)
Does anyone know anything about this?
my favorite serif typefaces up to now are in particular Albertina (is there a difference between the digital releases by DTL and Monotype?) and Scala, but also Minion. Bembo and Dante are as well fine typefaces with fine italics, but have in my opinion a too literary tone.
I’m in search of »my« typeface and have compared a lots of fonts. Albertina, Scala and Minion are clean, clear and neutral typefaces with (and that’s importent) wonderfual crisp italics! I consider to purchase a license for the MT Albertina Pro, but first want to be certain that I didn’t ignore an alternative.
If you have some alternatives in mind, please let me know! Thank you.
