Book Printing Font of the Week – Wednesday, June 24

Book Printing Fonts

Even though this font is still heavily used, I think it’s better days are behind us.  The font we are considering today is Monotype Corsiva!  Personally, I think it has always looked nice and it probably still has it’s place in society somewhere.  To me it screams a little bit old fashioned and 1990’s.  You would never want to write the body of your book text with this font but it might look nice for book chapter headings, book cover titles or for poetry books.  There really are no great alternatives in most basic font libraries.  I would like to see someone develop a more contemporary version of this font!
