which ones would you choose
if you could only have let’s say, 6? and what sizes? Roman, or Italic?

so far I have, goudy old style 12 pt. and caslon old style 12 pt. and cases to put them in

my list is longer than 6

* nicolas cochin 18 pt, and the italic as well
~ alternate style gothic #2
* an 8 or 10 pt cloister old style, (or maybe deepdene)
! weiss 30 pt
* centaur 12 point and something like poliphilus 16 pt. (or garamond) with languishing ligatures and an associated italic, (garamond has its own, poliphilus does not)

oh dear, I need more cases.

and the dingbats, are another story, though I do have a case in mind for them.
