body copy

21st Century Caslon

Thought I'd mine the knowledge of you experts for some counsel.
I'm currently on the hunt for a potential replacement for Adobe Caslon for magazine body copy.

We'd like to have something a little narrower ideally, to save space, and it would be nice to freshen up the characters. I've done what has felt like a lot of research, but have come up disappointed by the lack of Caslon-esque oldstyle faces available—especially in a useful range of weights. I think the closest thing I've come to an enjoyable solution is Sabon Next.

Anyone have other ideas or info about anything being currently worked on?

Appreciate any direction

body copy for knitting pattern

Forums: 

I'm designing a website and downloadable pdfs of knitting patterns. I used archer and gotham for headline and subcategories respectively for online and pdfs. I used arial for body copy online. what font to use for body copy on pdfs? I know arial is based on helvetica, but it looks much too wide, and narrow much too narrow. I like gill sans but the number "1"s look like lower case "L"s. yuck.
anyone have any advice? thank you!

Need help with this magazine body and headline font

Hey Everyone,

Really need to match the fonts circled in the image. There are two images, one with what I need circled (low-res) and one that's higher res. Here's the link to an online copy if that would help - http://www.zinio.com/reader.jsp?issn=RX1099-6729

I really appreciate the help.

Magazine body copy, looking for a quality serif

Hello,
I'm currently designing a photography magazine geared towards women. I'm trying to finalize the typeface I'll use for the body copy and I'm looking for some advice before I commit to anything. Right now I have the copy set in Cochin 8.5pt. I'm set on using a serif and I love the look of this, but I'm a little concerned with the readability. I'm not averse to spending some money on a quality font that can be used throughout the magazine, I like the look of Mercury and even Sentinel (H&FJ), but wanted to get some opinions before I purchase anything.

As always, thanks for the help!

Showing web addresses in body copy

Forums: 

Hiya

Here's a good one. What opinions to people have on suitable ways to display web addresses in body copy?

The first element to this is to do with punctuation and grammar, in that as a web address sits within a sentence, normal punctuation will apply (period at the end of the sentence). Also, it would be desireable for the url to be displayed on one line, but if it is too long to fit on one line in a column, it should be broken at a suitable place (such as after a slash/virgule). Websters encourages this application, whereas Oxford's New Hart's Rules mentions the perhaps somewhat antiquated use of 'http://' as well as placing the address within angle brackets.
