I Love Type Series (vol.3): I Love Bodoni
Edited and designed by TwoPoints.net

Created in 1798 by Italian printer and typographer Giambattista Bodoni, Bodoni was a studied product of revolution and innovation, bearing strong influences of Didot, the earliest modern typeface. Its contrasting stroke weight, hairline serifs and narrow structure, even the many variations it inspired in the 20th century, are seen a big challenge to application in design. But if used well, the typeface could often give a great sense of sobriety and elegance like no others can.

Centring on Bodoni and its variations in contemporary graphic design, I Love Bodoni is the third volume of I Love Type, masterly produced by Viction:ary and prolific Spanish creative duo, TwoPoints.Net. Aiming for a focused study on some of the most classic typefaces that have been a great influence to the creative industry for centuries, each volume of the I Love Type series is witness to the fashionable comeback and revival of time-honoured typefaces in contemporary design. The collection now includes I Love Futura (Vol. 1), I Love Avant Garde (Vol. 2) and I Love DIN (Vol. 4).

I Love Bodoni features a foreword by Wolfgang Hartmann, the owner of BauerTypes, with an in-depth introduction to the type’s origin and development.
