New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have typeset Borges' wonderful short (and I mean short) story "Borges and I" as a supplement to an article in the online academic journal I'm working on. I was hoping the experts here could take a look at what I've done and give me any suggestions that come to mind. The single page must be 8 1/2 x 11. Other than that, I have no real restrictions.
A couple of things to consider:
1. I chose Baskerville MT due to the reference to 18th-century typography in the story. Any suggestions for something more appropriate? (I have a limited set of fonts to work with, but I might be able to purchase something new if it is not too expensive.)
2. Is the initial capital too dark? Is the kerning of the characters around it OK?
Thanks in advance for any comments and suggestions.
