Boldoni - A Caricature of Modern Typefaces

fortetype's picture

Dear friends,

Boldoni is like a caricature: it brings with itself exaggerated elements of the modern typefaces, that has as main names Giambattista Bodoni and François-Ambroise Didot. Boldoni takes to the egde its width and serifs, causing a ultrafat type feeling, and its styles causes a monochromatic effect that remember the colors Black, Gray and White. Some of uses are titles, initials, drop caps, lettering, posters and vertical writing.

You can see it on pdf attached and T26 site,

Comments are welcome!
