I'm reading Bringhurst and I came across his discussion of sloped romans and italics (p. 56-59). This triggered a series of questions in my mind.
1) Is there a family that has sloped romans and italics? (serif or sans)
2) If there are any (or if any were made) would you use sloped romans for accents and italics for emphatic speech? Or would you avoid the sloped roman, as Bringhurst suggests?
Just some random thoughts...
