A short study in typography, this allowed me to do in depth research on a single typeface. The goal of the project was to show some of the history behind the typeface. Bodoni was designed for the use of the most elite of the upper class. Its bold use of contrasting thick and thin strokes made for an elegant typeface only the wealthy could afford. The minimalistic character depicted is made with the unbracketed base of the letter "B" while the monocle is made with the letter "O".
