Filosophia history

Hey there!

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!

My first class

Hello typophiles! :D I'm setting up a project in my very first typography course. It's also the first one where we really learn about the elements of design like repetition and contrast and such. Oh, and also about Gestalt! But yes, I'd just like some general feedback on the font choice and the layout and such. I'd very much appreciate it! I, of course, still have a lot to learn. So it'd be great to hear from all you experts, that way I can be more knowledgeable. I've been looking into the books in the resource section, and definitely intend on reading into them. Right now I'm reading the Universal Principles of Design, and it's great.

Okay, so I have a slight issue with rambling. This will be my last sentence. Alright, maybe just one more.
