if you we're to design a new Bodoni type family, would you include the condensed and poster variants?
I'm a new and learning designer just taking my first typography class. It is something I am really enjoying.
As part of my class, I was assigned a typeface to study and do research on and present as my final project. The face I was given is "Filosophia." It is a beautiful one and I know it was developed by Zuzana Licko of Emigre Fonts in the 1990's. I also know that it was inspired by the classic "Bodoni." Outside of that, I have found very little information on Filosphia itself.
Does anyone know of any books that include information about it or its history? Are there any groups, or communities dedicated to Filosophia? How about any valid websites?
Thanks for the help!
Hi I am doing a large high profile signage project using Annlie. Can anybody point me to anything well known where it has been used. I have to do a presentation about it. Also does anybody know anything other than whats on the linotype site about its creator Fred Lambert? Any interesting stuff at all on Annlie would be gratefully recieved.
Hello fellow typophiles!
Back with another type ID request. The attached example is a rather silly image found on Pinterest, but I'm looking for an elegant, extra bold, Bodoni-like serif like the one used. Any idea what this seemingly more modern take might be?
This is my first post, so be gentle. My professor, Pablo Medina, suggested this place to ask for some insight on a research paper I'm doing.
I'm basically in the formative throws right now, but I'm working towards some sort of thesis. I'm thinking about discussing how Bodoni as a transitional typeface bridges the gap between serif and sans serif fonts, and/or something else to do with its place in history.
As I said-- formative throws.
My main point of posting here is to ask if you guys can recommend any good sources, print or otherwise, for me to read up on the history and help myself get as close to a perfect grade as possible!
Anything would be appreciated, even just insight.
does anyone knows texts about the reception of Bodoni typefaces in XIX century Austrian Empire and Germany?
Does anyone know what this Didone font is?
Can't figure this one out and neither can WhatTheFont. It's currently being used on the homepage of Amazon.com. Help please...
Thanks in advance.
didot is so close to this but no cigar. its not any type of bodoni I've found or walbaum. any thoughts?
Hello I need one last font identification,
Its very similar its a italic serif, very similar to something in the Bodoni family but with much thinner lines. Any guesses?
Thanks again for you assistance and consideration!
I need help identifying the font in the attached jpeg. Anyone? Thanks!
I'd like to ID the type on these book covers.
I've tried WhatTheFont but it doesn't suggest a match.
I've also emailed the designer – will post if I get a reply!
Hello! Which version is this? The serifs are perfectly flat, so initially I thought it was Berthold Antiqua. But the "a" doesn't look like. Source
I have another question, not related to Bodoni: is there a way to subscribe to certain posts (or to all posts one has participated in), in such a way that every time there's an activity/reply to one's post or post one has replied in, an email notification be sent? Sorry, but I couldn't find anything in help, nor did I get any reply to my email sent to the webmaster. Thanks much in advance.
I'm not sure if anything like this has been asked before, but here goes.
When did Didone faces become associated with fashion/glamor, and why?
Im doing a set of posters on Bodoni.
Trying to highlight its versatility by associating
some words with it and typing them in different styles of Bodoni.
A draft of what the first poster will look like. Containing all the words.
Then I'll dedicate one poster to each word visualizing the word in a real environment.
What do you think about it?
I found this gorgeous font, and would appreciate any help in finding out it's name.
At first I thought it might be Eloquent by SJason Walcott, but can't seem to find a match.
Can someone please help me?
What font is this?
It is featured in this site:
Thanks in advance!
I'd like to announce the release of the work-in-progress version of my new typeface, Otama. All thoughts and opinions are very much welcome and appreciated.

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

Design like (see attached image) is everywhere - the b&w simplistic modernist look that bodoni always finds itself in.
Can anyone tell me when about this design look first emerged? What was it inspired by? ANY information?
I'm trying to match this family, specifically the italic for the author's name. I figured it's Bodoni, but the swashes in the italic capital 'T' and the italic lowercase 'k' are really throwing me for a loop.
Since this is a reprint of a book that was originally published in 1959 with multiple printing through the 70s and 90s it may very well be something that wasn't digitized. That makes things difficult for a publisher who wants to add copy to the beautiful title page spread.
Help? Someone, please? Thanks!
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!
I've been going a little crazy trying to work-out what this typeface is...
At first glimpse i thought it was a Bondoni Condensed variant but apparently not. If anyone is able to shine some light on the matter, it would be appreciated. Thank you.
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
I've been studying the typeface bodoni. These two examples look similar to it, I was just wondering what these two typefaces are. Thanks guys/girls.
