Didot

I know i've seen this all over, but can't figure out what it is exactly...

This is Monotype's "Neo-Didot", released in 1904 (IIRC). I've only seen it used once, in this wonderful 1985 edition of Lucian's stories and dialogues, produced by Franz Greno.

As far as I know, this face hasn't been digitized yet, which is a shame, as the digital Didots currently available have a stroke contrast way too high to be useful for longer stretches of text...

I'm proud to announce the release of Pyes Pa. A high contrast display italic.

Hello,

Wondering if anybody recognizes this typeface here:

Lots of letters to look at there, but they are all jumbled!

Fun, Curvy Didone

Hey,

Can anyone ID the typeface used here ("Ark People" etc)?

Or suggest any other fun, modern takes on the didone?

Thanks!

Dylan

I need to id this typeface. Its definitely a didot type typeface with bidoni-ish ball terminals. I'ts not Didoni or Didona...

Anyone! Please help!

Can anyone help me identify this awesome typeface used in the recent issue of Print magazine.

It looks a lot like Didot bold italic, but is heavier weight and has these amazing swashes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Mike.

Didone project

Hello Typophiles!

I would like to get some professional feedback. I've started drawing a didone-like
alphabet, taking Bodoni, Didot and a few similar font - and using my imagination and eye at least.

First of all this is meant to be a self-training project - and I like well-crafted Didone-s too so try to achieve something like that :)

It is a very early stage - the very basic letterforms are still tweaked here and there, but I like its slightly condensed look. Small caps and text figures are added using some automated effects and hand-tweaking the results of these.

I've tried to letterspace only the lowercase so far but the first result was a too tight look when text set and way too far wordspaces. First print test showed it too clearly.
