Several years ago I read Douglas Hofstadter's essay in Metamagical Themas about the near impossibility of AI researchers being able to encapsulate the subtleties of font. Since then, I've had a profound appreciation of typeface. Unfortunately, I'm still a beginner in all of this. I'm about to publish a collection of short stories, essays and a bit of poetry. I would like to get opinions as to what sort of classic serif I should use. Would it be advisable to use different fonts for each section of the book? I've perused the forums and so far have found all sorts of stuff. So much, in fact, that I feel it might be best to narrow my field of play. Any help will be greatly appreciated. You can find excerpts from the book here: http://blog.myspace.com/austinduggan Thanks. This site is awesome.
