Webfont: a legible, good quality grotesk/serif combination. Choices and alternatives

Forums: 

Hi everybody,
looking for a font combination for a web editorial project I'm working on (a magazine focused mainly on stories and opinion but also with short news, let's say in a 70/30% proportion). A sidenote: I'm not the graphic designer, guess I'm the "creator".
Since I spend most of my days reading, print and on screen, I really like looking at good typograpghy and even if I'm waaaaay far from being an expert, I'd like to choose a bunch of typefaces myself and then discuss with the graphic designer.
Anyway, I'd like to use a sans for titles/headlines and a serif for long text. The layout is clean, with colors and composition vaguely inspired to the 60-70s italian and european magazines, but It looks like a website, so It's not "old" or "vintage".

Beautiful italics in the (previous) paperback edition of [The Design of Everyday Things].

Hi All!

I met this beautiful, condensed italic font (serif, but not very much) in my (previous) paperback edition of [The Design of Everyday Things] (wonderful book, BTW); but I cannot exactly identify the font.

New Release: Eskapade Roman

Forums: 

The experimental Eskapade fraktur by Alisa Nowak, received two additions to the family. This time, Alisa created two fonts of the old-style nature adapting a humanist structure with condensed proportions. Both, the roman and italic have strong links to the Fraktur providing for a balanced harmony in mixed text-settings. Please contact us for details, if you wish to upgrade to the full Eskapade family.
