Background

Didot LP is a very elegant rendition of the 18th-century French typeface Didot. This design took the earlier Italian neo-classical model (Bodoni) to a new level of refinement, with fully rationalized shapes and delicate hairlines. Didot LP accentuates these qualities, providing a classical text face with a clear and modern voice.

The companion face Didot LP Display, optimizes the proportions, spacing and hairlines for use at very large sizes.
