Description

Official printer for the Duke of Parma, Giambattista Bodoni (1740�’1813) declared that well designed type derived its beauty from four principles: uniformity of design, sharpness and neatness, good taste, and charm. In his Manuale tipografico, published posthumously in 1818, he distilled these principles into a comprehensive catalog of type and set the standard for printing the alphabet thereafter.TASCHEN’s meticulous reprint of Bodoni’s masterwork celebrates what was an unprecedented degree of technical refinement and visual elegance, as well as exploring the origins of the much loved Bodoni typeface, still frequently deployed in both print and digital media. Like the original, the book features 142 sets of roman and italic typefaces, a wide selection of borders, ornaments, symbols, and flowers, as well as Greek, Hebrew, Russian, Arabic, Phoenician, Armenian, Coptic, and Tibetan alphabets.
