Bodoni’s Manuale Tipografico (1818) is Online

A copy of Giambattista Bodoni’s Manuale Tipografico has been photographed and posted by the Rare Book Room. This is another great tip that came from Maxim Zhukov through the atypi mailing list.

This is an excellent specimen for anyone doing research on Giambattista Bodoni, the “King of Printers.”

    This is fantastic! Thank you very much! I visited the museum in 1992 in Parma but unfortunately it is closed now.

    The Bodoni museum is open, but it is necessary to make an appointment before a visit. (I was there in March.)
