Because I love Bodoni so much, I keep a collection of Bodoni-inspired posters on my Pinterest account. The poster below showed up in my feed recently and led me to do some more research on the typographer. Bodoni strove to produce all the major classics in his typeface (including Homer, Horace, Virgil, Tasso. etc). Evidently his Iliad impressed Napoleon so heartily that Napoleon gave Bodoni a fine pension.
The connections between historic figures is sometimes baffling.
