Didones

Didones

The letterforms clearly show the influence of copperplate engraving; the broad-edged scorper, held either vertically or at an angle, makes for the highly marked difference in line weight between hairlines and main strokes. This contrast may be regarded as the principal stylistic feature of these typefaces. There is very little rounding-out of serifs, ovals have become circles, axes have been straightened, stress has become vertical. The French family Didot, the Italian Bodoni and, in the early 19th Century, the German Walbaum, all made their mark upon this group of typefaces. The letterforms seem constructed, matter of fact, clear-cut.
