I’m looking for a good high legibility serif font. Know any?
OH, thousands. I’ll list a few I like and use lot. You can add any characteristics and qualifiers that are important to you.
Apollo (by Frutiger, and better than Palatino for long text, i.e., book work)
Cheltenham (high x-height)
Century Nova (good for flyers and short work, and also for books)
Constantia (reminds me of Perpetua)
Bodoni (I used it for a journal back in the 90s, but since then, not; I like Electra better as a Didone-ish font)
Fontin (by Jos Buivenga, who makes great fonts)
Bernhard Modern (low x-height)
Cochin (very dissimilar italic, which looks like a cursive hand)
Tried and true, but I tend not to use them
Garamond (Adobe, not ITC)
And everybody’s whipping boy, Times
Thank you so much for the list!
Luckily, I already have Constantia and, of course, Times.
if you can’t find them i can give you links
Thank you so much! I’ve found the links, so don’t worry.
Take a look at Century Schoolbook set 10 on 13. Has a great x-height (letters aren’t skinny)…
