Background

Bauer Bodoni™ was originally released in 1926 from the Bauer Type Foundry in Frankfurt. It was designed by Heinrich Jost, who was the artistic director of the foundry from 1923 until 1948, and punchcut by Louis Hoell. The forms are closely related to the original Bodoni typefaces, and are considered to be more delicate and graceful than many other Bodoni interpretations. Long admired by typographers as the crème de la crème of available Bodoni display types, this version looks especially fine at large sizes and will make a stately presence in any sumptuous magazine, lavish book, or dignified website.
