Font Founders Series #3: Giambattista Bodoni

Tuesday August 30th, 2016 by Extensis

The next installment in our Font Founders series is Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813), an Italian type designer who is responsible for many of the typefaces we still use today. You may not think often about Bodoni, but he was looking ahead to you. As he said:

No other art is more justified than typography in looking ahead to future centuries; for the creations of typography benefit coming generations as much as present ones.
