I do this in the .Xdefaults file

!!!!!!!  ***** Fonts *******

Emacs.default.attributeFont: -b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-*-110-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1
Emacs*menubar*font: -microsoft-verdana-*-r-*-*-*-110-*-*-p-*-*-*
! If you choose a font which does not have an italic version, you can specify
! some other font to use for it here:
Emacs.italic.attributeFont: -*-courier-medium-o-*-*-*-110-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*

Insert font acording to taste.

If you adjust .Xdefaults, you then need to run

xrdb -load ~/.Xdefaults
