I'd like to ask for some advice. I'm a musician studying Composition. I love design and typography, but I ultimately abandoned it to focus on music.
I've been using Minion Pro as the text font for my self-edited scores and drafts. I find it gorgeous: the regular is clean and great looking, the bold has presence, and I'm particularly enamored with its italic. However, I'm not sure where I got it. I don't know whether it came with my Mac or if it came with an Adobe product, since it was developed by Adobe. I'm guessing the latter.
I'm in the process of founding a music publishing house. I would be in charge of handling directly with the music, and responsible of establishing a "house style", a consistent design to use across all of our published scores.
Taking that into consideration, what would I need to be use the font professionally? Is there any licensing I need to take care of? Are there similar fonts you would recommend?
Thank you in advance for your replies!
