      Is Beorcana used for text in the interior? Or just on the cover? btw, Beorcana is a great fit for a book of folk tales.

      No, the interior text face is Ross Mills’s Huronia. Beorcana could work very well as a text face, but it’s unusual-looking enough that it might provoke disquiet in some potential readers. I’m still looking for the right project to use Beorcana as the text face. (Well, I did use it in a brochure once, and I’ve used it for promotional cards and such, but I haven’t tried using it as the text face for a book.)

      Please share with us some interior images, John! I’d love to add a Huronia use here. You can edit the use and add them anytime.
