body

Hi there,

I have a client wanting to redesign a magazine, including fonts for body text as well as headers, callouts, etc. What is the best way to compile and show, on paper, what different fonts look like in print? I'm finding that some foundries have PDF samples of text, but others and MyFonts don't, so not sure what the best strategy would be. Any resources you recommend?

Thanks so much for your help.

hello,

my magazine uses bembo for body copy, which i find a bit dated and better for book copy.

can anyone please recommend a more modern serif that works for body copy? Perhaps a little cleaner than Bembo.

I am considering paring it with Museo (headlines) throughout the magazine.

The magazine has a dated look, so just looking for something more modern with a little more weight than Bembo, I find it light, wide and antiquated.

If you know of anything great, don't be afraid to suggest what it might pair with for headlines etc...

I really appreciate any suggestions. Looking forward to some feedback.

I publish a folksy, rural lifestyle newspaper/magazine and am considering switching to Turnip for the body text. It's mainly a print paper, but also gets put on the web. What would be a good pairing for headlines? (I'm currently using Chaparral for the body and Gibson semi-bold for headlines but would like to refresh the look.) Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Pairing a HTF Didot

Hello,

I am looking for a text serif font to pair with HTF Didot. Any suggestion?

I'm designing a trade paperback: it's approximately 200 pages with the title & headings set in Proxima Nova. The book is non-fiction and about progressive religion/spirituality.

Any ideas of a good body font to use? Something clean, modern, forward-looking and extremely readable. Thanks for your suggestions!

Body In Motion Face

Can someone tell me what the face for the "Body In Motion" headline is?

Anyone know what font BODYMASTERS is? Thanks!

Hi,

I'm currently redesigning a magazine for a client who has a very low budget (almost non-existent). I'm at the stage of deciding which fonts to use for body copy. I don't think I'll get anywhere with free fonts, hence I chose Museo Sans for display and captioning. I'd like to look into alternatives for similar prices as the Exljbris 'free' fonts ($15-30 per weight).

I like Calluna, but I'd prefer it if the magazine didn't end up looking like an Exljbris specimen.

Has anyone ever worked with a good, usable, cheap serif font for body copy use in a long document like a magazine or book?

Thanks

Jono
