New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've taken over the job of typesetting an online academic journal. Past papers were set in the version of Goudy Oldstyle from Adobe. I was thinking of upgrading to the Lanston Type Collection (P22) version of this typeface, in part because it contains a more complete glyph set (e.g., it includes a full complement of superscript figures).
I've never used any LTC fonts, though, and I wanted to get some input before investing in one of them. Are they generally regarded as well-made and well-produced fonts?
I was also wondering whether switching to the LTC version will create a noticeably different look for the journal. I know that there will be subtle differences between the two versions, but I want to preserve a sense of continuity. That is, I don't want it to be obvious to readers that I've switched fonts. Does anyone know how different the two versions are? (I can't think of a good way to test this without buying the LTC fonts.)
I'm just an amateur, and any input from more experienced typophiles would be greatly appreciated!
