I'm not sure whether this post went through, so I'm trying again. In the past, I've worked on writing, editing, and functional template design, but in general I've left "pretty stuff" such as font selection to others. So I really don't know what fonts might be most readable, or most popular, or how to pair a body and a heading font, or the like. Of course, much is written all over the Internet, but I thought that here, there would be people with specific experience writing and publishing books. So that is why I have directed this inquiry here. I hope it's okay. :) Thanks, Elchanan From: VLM TechSubs [mailto:techs...@vibrantlivingministries.org] Sent: Thursday, August 15, 2013 3:22 PM To: Framers; Free Framers Subject: OT: Font suggestions for book? Greetings everyone, I'm working in FM 8, Win 7 x64 on a book that will be published this Fall. I've now been asked to do the book design, in addition to most of the writing and basic template design. The subject matter is primarily financial . it's a book about the history of taxation. It's not a scholarly work at all, but rather one designed to "wake up" American teens and young adults to some of the issues involved. Footnotes are used here and there, but more for explanation of background/details than in a traditional sense as references. The book will be published in a standard 6x9 format, paperback. All that having been said . What are people's favorite or recommended fonts for such a project. And since this is being published on a shoestring budget with a nonprofit/educational bent, suggestions of free fonts would be most welcome. Well, thanks in advance! Best regards, Elchanan
