In my big projects I have used these: Palatino - My favorite, though the angular geometrics don't make text flow well Optima - This non-serif font is nice and clean, but I think it was way overused by cheap books in the early 1980s. Minion - a little on the newspapery but very legible. New Century Schoolbook - this is used by one of my titles that's in very high demand... a handsome font for textbooks. What typefaces do you like? Maybe I'll go with one of your faves.
Curious George: Fonts! I'm a small-potatoes publisher and once again I am faced with picking fonts for a new nonfiction title. Any fontaholics here? What are your favorite body text typefaces?
