Get classical, and find out what's important to modify for a small size text typeface. How to get economical? How to save space, save money (but still keep it legible)?

what to do
Do a research on existing bible typefaces, compare them. Define the essential parts of a bible typeface.
Start with an existing typeface: (Bauer) Bodoni
Modify it to make it legible in 6 pts. and make it much more economical.
Start with the characters: Hamburgerfontstiv, but make all of them in the end.
Present them in real size (really small) and then compare this with other fonts and the Bodoni.
Make 2 spreads for the Pts. magazine.
