I've always enjoyed both Bodoni and Scotch style faces. I wanted to introduce some ‘fashion sense’ into the ‘work horse’, and get something unique. I think there's some potential to make it into a text face, eventually expand it, but I wanted to get some feedback here first. I honestly have no idea what I'm doing, folks. It just sounded like a worthwhile idea to entertain.
I've been looking at Monticello quite a bit, and referencing a generic Bodoni for logic and proportion. For what it's worth.
What do y'all think of that |Q|? and
I realize the teardrop is missing from the |g|. Bear with me.
Thanks to raph for the Monticello Specimens.
Any ideas for the titling along the bottom (besides Trajan)?
I created several web-font stacks based on different styles: neo-grotesk (realist sans-serif); geometric; humanist body; humanist display; renaissance; neoclassic; baroque; romantic; and monospace. I am still puzzling with Georgia.
Georgia is a wonderful web-font for display and book, but I cannot classify it perfectly. Do you believe it is a realist serif, baroque typeface, or...?
Also, do you think Century Schoolbook is a good Georgia-alternative for web-body or/and display?
Is Century Schoolbook not somewhat different in style?
Thank you for you reactions.
