Before we were watching documentaries on sans serifs, Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) was laying down a credo on typographical design. His philosophy was published posthumously in 1818, and Taschen’s re-creation is one of the ultimate volumes for anyone who loves the printed word. There are other versions, but the cover on this particular facsimile edition is a must have.
