Before & After

Great recommendations on how to choose a typeface for text at Before&After magazine: Character widths should be similar. For example, Futura or Avant Garde are bad. Medium height-to-width ratio, so no compressed types. Medium x-height. Small variations in stroke weight: out with the didones. No mirrors. Pick typefaces in which letters are sufficiently different. Avoid large counters. Avoid quirkiness. Their favorite text typefaces: Adobe Caslon (11/12.75pt), Adobe Garamond (11.5/12.75pt), ITC Stone Serif (9.5/12.75pt), Janson Text 55 Roman (10.5/12.75pt, Linotype). PDF file.
