Btw: Am I using the term “roman” correctly?
What kind of text do you want it for? Bodytext, captions, heads?
Btw, are the line breaks the final version? Seem a bit confusing to me; how about:
»Type is idealized writing -
yet there is no end ...«
Reminds me of Goudy's italics, so one of his romans might do.
Oh - just now I see the specimen at their site :)
No worries, Indra. I’m just looking for something (a serif) that could sit right next to it, at the same size and just … look right.
That’s interesting Nick. I’ll look into Goudy.
An interesting question: How should italics relate to it’s roman counterpart?
Any particular one, Nick? There’s seems to be a lot around with very varying quality.
After due research, Village Roman; but you would have to add a slight stroke to tune up its weight to match Joos. Or slim Joos down.
