As a magazine publisher - for over 20 years - I saw first hand the negative impact fancy fonts could have on a person's inclination to read... or not.
There are significant risks associated with making text more difficult to read through font choice.
A study by Hyunjin Song and Norbert Schwarz published in Psychological Sciences explains that if people find reading and absorbing instructions difficult they are likely to assume that the behaviour thye're being asked to perform will be as difficult:
"participants reported that the behavior would take more time, would feel less fluent and natural, and would require more skill, and hence were less willing to engage in it when the instructions were printed in a difficult-to-read font".
