New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I could really use a second opinion (myself being the first) on these faces I'm about to get for a zine I'm starting soon (see here). I've spent untold hours over the past month tracking these down (I've probably seen three quarters of the myfonts catalog), but I'm still not 100% sure there isn't something closer to what I'm looking for out there. Some more experienced eyes would be very helpful at this point before I make a final decision.
Specifically, I'm wondering three things:
1. Are there any faces that are similar to the two display faces? A more boisterous version of the egyptian perhaps?
2. Do the two display faces together seem anachronistic? Ditto for the text and display together. I would use the roman display with the Walbaum roman and the italic display with Fournier italic, for the most part.
3. And can anyone recommend a ornament/dingbat font do go with this combination? My eyes glazed over after two hours in the Dingbatcave. I will probably get Fournier ornaments to go with Fournier, but it doesn't extensive enough.
Display: Wade Vernacular (Aboutype) & Slanted Antique Roman (MT).
Text: Fournier *italic* (LT) & Walbaum Text roman (Storm).
Also thinking about using a Edward Gorey-esque script font, Queensland, in a limited way.
