Zapfino prose?

R27's picture

Hi all,

I'm using lines of prose in a design and wondered what people thought of Zapfino. I sometimes get the feeling it's can be hard to read. the point size is set at 23, what leading should it be subsequently?

any other suggestions of typeface are very welcome.

Even though Zapfino contains many flourish lines, it certainly is not quite suitable for long texts as it distracts the reader from the content. In my 'own' opinion, try Poetica Chancery with variations or Snell Roundhand, Edwardian Script or even Shelley families as these are more readable. But it's solely up to your intentions and ideas.
