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.
my favorite serif typefaces up to now are in particular Albertina (is there a difference between the digital releases by DTL and Monotype?) and Scala, but also Minion. Bembo and Dante are as well fine typefaces with fine italics, but have in my opinion a too literary tone.
I’m in search of »my« typeface and have compared a lots of fonts. Albertina, Scala and Minion are clean, clear and neutral typefaces with (and that’s importent) wonderfual crisp italics! I consider to purchase a license for the MT Albertina Pro, but first want to be certain that I didn’t ignore an alternative.
If you have some alternatives in mind, please let me know! Thank you.
