book typeface


We added a new Book style with its accompanying italic to our successful type family Maiola. It is darker in colour, making reading an even more pleasant experience. Additionally, responding to customer feedback, we have also designed a whole set of symbols used to set logic. Customers who have purchased the Maiola Bundle and would like to add the Book styles, are welcome to a special offer. Please contact us, if interested.

Hello! I'd like to know your opinion, please!

Is Scala Sans a good typeface for running text (body text)? (even thought its typographic colour seems a little "dark" and similar to Gill Sans, in my humble opinion)

I really mean the sans version, not the serif one! (not Scala)

And if it is good for running text, which typeface could be a good companion for it? (another sans, maybe for display headlines on a magazine?)

I know there is a controversy mixing a sans serif with other sans serif, but I've seen it in use and it could work, sometimes, I guess?

What do you people think? (maybe Scala Sans with TheSans or Scala Sans with DIN?)

Thanks for your feedback!

I have a corporate client whose font is Calibri.
This was chosen because the majority of their communication is on-screen and also because they like to generate their own documents from word (god help me).

They have now come to me with a book design project and have expressed a desire to use Calibri throughout.

Any opinions regarding this will be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

I am trying to hunt down any visual reference anyone can share of a typeface named Duodecimo. It was at least available during the early to middle 1800s. A serif typeface used in book printing and was available in the United States.

If this exists in a digital font that would be interesting to see a sample or link of.

I appreciate any insight into this typeface anyone might have.

Thanks much,
JM
