In the early twentieth century there was a new wave of interest for the Bodoni types. The most important revival of the style was that of Morris Benton for theAmerican Type Foundersin 1911. In 1923 Giovanni Mardersteig established theOfficina Bodoniin Switzerland and recast some of the original Bodoni matrices. This inspired Louis Hoell at theBauer Type Foundryof Frankfurt to make a version of the Bodoni a year later, which was very popular. In 1930 theBerthold Foundry, famous for the Akzidenz-Grotesk (1896), made another version that comes close to the original.
Robert Bringhurst (The Elements of Typographic Style) wrote that the digitalization of the Bodoni faces would be highly problematic. Being so sharply cut and with such aristocratic grace, low resolution would surely be lethal to almost any version of Bodoni. However, in 1994-95 the face was successfully digitized after all, as ITC Bodoni under the direction of typographer Sumner Stone. Still, most typographers prefer the Bodoni cut from Bauer and Berthold, which were also digitized recently.
