I'm having a struggle here in the middle of the alphabet, and the Is have been just as difficult as the Hs were. Still at least it's making me do a bit of research and allowing me to discover fonts that I've never used, but which could come in handy one day.
If ever I'm asked to design a newspaper, for instance, then I might start by choosing Ionic. The earliest form of which was brought out by Vincent Figgins in 1821, and intended for display work. In 1863 a more refined version appeared which had more contrast between thick and thin strokes and the serifs were bracketed. Further developments were made, however the robustness of the Egyptian style was retained making the face suitable for newspaper text setting. With a large x-height and strong hairlines and serifs, the Ionic font family became widely used by the newspaper industry as a body type and provided a model for many 20th-century newspaper typefaces.
But if I wanted something a bit more 19th-century (at least in appearance), then I might well choose Industrial Gothic. I can't tell you a great deal about it, except that it was designed for Monotype by Jim Parkinson, whose website can be found just here.
