New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm designing layouts for a coffee-table book of very organic photomontages of the rainforest. Some images have text incorporated in them, and some may even have text that spills onto the page.
I'm not a typographer by any means; but I love type and I'd so appreciate suggestions for a text face that could complement such images. Something versatile, with a nice big family? Flourishes... It may (or may not) even be appropriate to experiment with fleurons (mmm...fleurons...) to complement the face.
Something like ITC Galliard? Anything by Lanston Type ? (divine fleurons!!!) I love their Jenson Oldstyle but I think I need something with true italics.
Any suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
