    Hi Koos, and welcome to TypeDrawers. There is one thing, though...
    In our rules, Rule #1 is "real names only". Please edit your profile.

      Thanks George!

      I've changed my name because I'm a guest and want to obey the rules of the place I'm visiting. I don't like it though. My first/last name is unique (unlike 'George Thomas' 🙃 ) and with the forum indexed by search engines, I don't like the idea that in 20 years someone googling my name will find some silly thing I said here. But I know forum moderation is hard and this works for the team...

    Hello everybody,

    I've been going through some of the typefaces I feel drawn to and I've realized that there's some finesse lacking in my collection. I enjoy setting some text in Granjon but I have come to understand some of the criticism directed towards it - all those claims of it being anaemic, anorexic, feeble.

    Leaving aside the usual suspects when it comes to signify typographical sophistication (Bodonis, Didots...), what is one left with when trying to convey some drama and, above all, romance?

    I would definitely get rid of the cute category, which I actually love, (Archer); the admittedly precious and refined (Mrs. Eaves) and the aforementioned Granjon.

    Vogue magazine uses Sabon for some of its online content. It is indeed beautiful, but I wonder if there's another typeface that is better suited to convey that kind of grand, romantic, time-honored mood. 

    Could someone please enlighten me and suggest a few typefaces that may play the (graceful) part?


    Thanks to everybody for the time, effort and patience.
