Specimen Book: Bodoni

I found a type specimen book for the typeface Bodoni by V E Peters online. The booklet features a cork patterned cover and floral cutouts in the pages. According to the artist, she was inspired by cigar boxes when creating the book. She included quotes relating to cigars on the pages. I was drawn to this book because of the unique cover and format. The design is very simple and elegant. The colors are also rich and comforting, adding to the sophistication of the type. I feel that this book did an excellent job of bringing character to the font. The booklet has an inviting, vintage feel that carries over to the Bodoni typeface.
