Bodoni <3

I love Bodoni. I did write up a little something about it earlier but never posted it. I think it's on the computer at work. I may add it to this at a later point but probably not.
Anyway ever since I entered the realm of Graphic Design and became aware of the joys of a well kerned word and a lovelingly leaded paragraph I have loved fonts. Bodoni was one the first ones I ever got to play around with for an assignment. Sadly, I never get to use it now, as work is all about sans serifs and mutilation. Occasionally I muck around with it for my own amusement but that's not often enough.
I came across this t-shirt on Nubby Twiglet & couldn't resist. Frankly my credit card probably wasn't happy about it but that's a thought for another day. I also bought a poster of the same design, that has yet to arrive.

Much love to you Giambattista you're awesome.

Edit: Picking up the poster tomorrow morning :) Yeah!
