New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm currently writing an essay which includes some short case studies of typefaces. I would like to include Didot as one of them but I cant seem to find out that much information about its history.
I already know some bits about the typeface and its designer but I'm struggling for its context really - I dont know anything about what else was happening at the time and what made both didot and bodoni both design such similar typefaces at similar points in history?
Thanks for any help, Rick
