I was wondering if anyone knew/had suggestions...
What typeface(s) works with Futura?
I'm using Futura as headings and headlines...
So, I'm looking for something which will work for body copy.

Thank you

I hope this gives you some ideas.

If you've just read that other thread mentioned in gulliver's post above; one font not mentioned there which seems to really be an actual slab-serifed version of Futura, is Linotype Memphis.

Memphis and Futura look totally fab together. Mostly because Memphis is Futura with slab serifs tacked on.
