Fonts are not something that I normally concern myself with, but when I published Stags! I realised there was a whole world of pitfalls waiting out there. For text such as that in a book I chose Garamond, but for Mmm...No1...Cookbook there are a lot of figures that wouldn't necessarily show up well in Garamond, but there are also descriptive paragraphs. In the end I opted for Arial, with a mixture of 11, 12 and 14 point for the bulk of the text. The reason is simple, the book is really meant for Kindle - and that has its own font!
Going through the tedious task of proofreading and editing the recipes. Done 4, another 46 to go. And its making me hungry.
