What typeface would work well for display text, paired with body text in Times?

The criteria are that it should be

  • serifed;
  • with similar contrast to Times itself, certainly no greater contrast;
  • with perhaps a little more weight; and
  • with similar length ascenders and descenders relative to x-height.

I was thinking maybe Libre Baskerville, but I dislike its open lowercase g, its capital C, and its figures (especially 3). The preference is not to end up using Times itself as the display face :-)

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. Font choice is very subjective/opinion based, and so there can be no correct answer to this question. However it sounds like you want a display font similar to Times. Georgia is one possibility.
