Donna Bodoni

DonnaBodoni was inspired by David Farey.

He once wrote, somebody should honor the widow of Giambattista Bodoni the brave Signora Paola Margherita Dall 'Aglio for her effort to have the Manuale tipografico di Giambattista Bodoni published after his dead.

Since I have redesigned a good deal of Bodonis work and added some of my own, I thought it was my duty to do at least this for Bodonis unknown widow.

Here is my 3-cut script in her honor. The design is remotely based on Bodonis English-Initials.
