### What font goes well with Bernhard Modern?

• Email

I am doing a brochure using Bernhard Modern as a headline font and
looking for a suitable font to use for the body copy underneath. Could
be serif or sans-serif.
Someone suggested using Caslon but I'm not sure if that really does it
for me....

Perhaps Caledonia or New Caledonia (Transitional 511 BT).

With Bernhard Modern I'd suggest something simple like Myriad. Sans serif may look too different.

Choice of a typeface (not font) depend on basic layout, images, colors, etc. so your question is like "I'll make dinner on blue plates which wine should I choose." ;-)

Last time I looked at Myriad it was a sans-serif font ;-)

LOL - I agree. Not to forget: content. It could be a menu for an elegant
restaurant or a brochure for a senior citizens' residence or ...

Anyway, with the large ascenders of B.M. you should make use of=20
generous linespacing with the body text as well. Whatever font or=20
typeface :-) you chose for that.

[SEARCH] Font Package : Bernhard Modern & co.
Hi there, I recently swapped from a Titanium to an iMac. Unfortunately, i've lost several font collections during the data transfer (CD-ROM and LAN - i know, i am goofy sometimes). I was intensively using the Bernhard Modern, that was installed out of some commercial software. Problem : i don't even remember when i started using this font, means i can't locate the potential source in my application library. Could you please help me finding which soft it is or could be, so i can reinstall my favorite fonts from the corresponding CD ? Thanks in advance, and Merry Xmas, _Marc Have ...

Mac Font Book and Computer Modern Postscript fonts
I have the complete collection of Computer Modern Postscript fonts obtained from a TeX download and stored as individual font files with names like CMxxxx in my OS 10.3.9 usr/Library/Fonts folder, and they work fine with TeXShop. I can't seem to add them to Font Book, however. When I try to add them to the Font column in Font Book using the "+" button, all their names appear in the Find dialog greyed out (other fonts are active as expected). Does Font Book not handle Postscript fonts? Or is there something special about these CM fonts that Font Book can't handle? ...

Need old Font Editor for Windows vector fonts (like modern.fon)

organizing fonts well
I've got a number of CDs and DVDs containing fonts and I want to organize them in hierarchically structured folders on a hard drive. I've read that there is no single 'best' way of classifying fonts for storage and retrieval purposes but I've decided to settle for the method used on this Wiki page initially: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typeface So, Roman, Blackletter, Gaelic, Monospaced and Symbol are the basic folders I'm going to use, with sub-divisions of these as needed. My method for finding and deleting duplicates isn't very well developed yet. I have mai...

Fonts for modern websites
I need a font to reflect the design of a modern, minimalist looking website I'm designing, but I can't seem to find any. The ones I find are either too much "cool" or "high tech" looking, or completely boring. The fonts need to have a slight "high tech" or "architect" sort of feel to them. Any suggestions for any such fonts that are free? -- Regards, KPT In article <434975da@news.broadpark.no>, KPT <----@--.--> wrote: > I need a font to reflect the design of a modern, minimalist > looking website I'm designing, but...

latin modern fonts
The latin modern fonts are recommended over the computer modern fonts (they are the replacements), and I was having some issue with them. One of the more obvious differences between cm and lm is that the \cdot is raised slightly and looks more round. However, the most obvious change is that there is significantly more spacing on both sides of \cdot. The spacing is so large that it doesn't look good...especially with dot products appearing as an exponent. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there anyway to "fix" it.
