On the occasion of the bicentennial of Bodoni’s Manuale tipografico, Tipoteca released a printed homage to the extraordinary art of the ‘maestro’ from Saluzzo: a limited edition plaquette, hand-set and letterpress printed from movable type and made more valuable by a half vellum hand binding.
A letterpress printed book is the most vivid way to keep alive Bodoni’s legacy. He represents an outstanding master in the history of printing and book publishing.
