Re: [BKARTS] font sizes



Hi Jess-
I'm sure you'll get a flurry of responses to this one! I've never seen 13 pt. printer's type. I'd suggest trying 12 or 14 pt. in something with a slightly smaller x-height - possibly Bodoni or Garamond?
all best

Could anyone advise me of a font that might work for a book (B5 size) I have been using Times New Roman which looks fine, but I can't seem to get anything between a 12 point and a 14 point - one looks too small and the other too large..The book is part poetry, part essay...so the poetry looks too sparse in the 14 point...
best regards
Jess
