Bodoni Ornamental is a western font style published by FontMesa.

Bodoni Ornamental is a revival of a very old typeface based upon the Poster Bodoni letter shape. Giambattista Bodoni died in 1813, this ornamental variation was created in the 1820â $ s or 1830â $ s which was the time period when a number of these ultra vibrant embellished type deals with began to appear, the initial artist is currently unknown.

The original version of this elaborate classic was only available as a set of uppercase letters, today over one hundred eighty years later this font is now complete with a new lowercase, numbers and accented characters for Eastern, Central and Western European countries.

Due to the ornate information in Bodoni Ornamental when printing itÃs recommended to use a laser printer 600dpi or greater, a 1200dpi printer will give you the finest outcomes rendering the a lot of detail at the tiniest possible point size for this font.

Small house user Ink Jet printers are not recommended for Bodoni Ornamental unless you set the font to a huge point size. With Ink Jet printers much of the detail in the letters will bleed together as the ink hits the page, business Ink Jet printers such as Giclà e printers might offer great results.

When utilizing Bodoni Ornamental for digital images consisting of website graphics it may help to add a one pixel stroke fill around the letters setting color to white or grey, this might assist the website images display much better on some computer system's.


You will require an image editing application such as Adobe Photoshop to develop your image including the stroke fill and save as a jpg, png or gif file.


This was among those tasks that once I began it I couldn't let it go till it was completed, I kept a time card for this typeface which was begun on October 27th 2009 and completed just over 2 weeks later November 14th with an overall of 95 work hours.


I hope you enjoy this old font style as much as I did making it.
