Bodoni is a serif typeface originally designed by Giambattista Bodoni in 1798. The earlier versions of Bodoni were considered Transitional while the later versions fall into the Modern category. The typeface is known for its extreme contrast between thick and thin strokes which can make it more suitable for a display face rather than a text face.
