PastaBodoni

History appears not to have recorded whether Giambattista Bodoni really liked to eat pasta, but he certainly wasn't a Mangiamaccheroni. What we do know is that Mr. Bodoni composed and set type in the same way he ate spaghetti; which was, in the fashion of the period, with his hands. Today We start in earnest printing the Manuale Pastagrafico, a compendium of type, pasta and food terminology hand-set in Bodoni. Buon appetito!
