My best choices for the new book font and reasons why:
3. (shown as plain set type for now, w/o the special ink effect seen on 7.) is easy to read, calm, neither too feminine nor too masculine, nor too young nor too old. Has a softness, will read well, even at the smaller sizes of the book’s text (which can be set in black).
7. (shown w/ the special ink effect in two colors) has the most personality, looks fantastic w/ the effect b/c of the thicks and thins. Is cheerful and lively. Gives great movement.
4. (shown as plain set type for now, w/o the special ink effect seen on 7.) is the softest, clear, clean, simple, still has thicks and thins and flourish but has a more steady baseline and therefore more meditative.
