Bodoni Poster font family


Designed by Giambattista Bodoni
Chauncey H. Griffith in 1929
Though it bears little resemblance to the types designed by the King of Printers (Bodoni) , Poster Bodoni pushes the stroke contrast feature of the modern faces to a captivating extreme. It was designed by Chauncey H. Griffith in 1929, and resembles the fat-faces of the nineteenth century. In all weights - black, black italic, and compressed - the skinny counter shapes are cushioned by solid and satisfying main strokes. Clever nuances (like the tail of the Q and the ball terminals) help to give this type a simultaneously cheerful and impressive ambiance that's great for advertising and signage."

Features

Languages

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
