|"No other art is more justified than typography in looking
ahead to future centuries; for the creations of typography benefit coming generations
as much as present ones."
Bodoni became a highly popular type face in the late 1700s for bookmaking. Later, a rapidly expanding newspaper industry would embrace its unique 'color' on the printed page. Today, we see beautifully forged Bodoni adorning everything from corporate annual reports to magazine advertising.
__ When you use Bodoni Open, use it for its grace. But also use it for its ability to communicate more than words... a feeling of well being and richness. You see here in our header above, I couldn't resist filling those tooled areas with a color blend. This is just one example of the opportunities available with this font.

Bodoni Open is caps and lower case, but for titling use only caps. Allow a little extra spacing, and attempt to mimic the tooled openings with your character spacing. It will look very elegant indeed.
