Fonts similar to Bodoni

Hi,
I'm working on an artist monograph, and I'm looking for a classic, elegant & geometric typeface such as Bodoni. Can be a bit more avantgarde.
I'd use Bodoni but somehow I feel it's been used and abused, so I'd be grateful for any suggestions of fonts that would create the same effect, but are bit "fresher" for the eye.

thanks,

Just checking: Is this for text?

It's for the titles and quotations, the text is in Verlag Book, or whichever sans serif that "sits" nice next to Bodoni.

Currently I can think of these Bodoni-like faces:

Khunrath's Justus (has a wee bit of Life BT in it).
Jos Buivenga's Geotica.

A couple of ideas from the 'avantgarde' corner:
http://optimo.ch/typefaces_Didot-Elder.html ? Maybe too Display.
