Didone-typeface Characteristics
Showing the 5 characteristics of a Didone-typeface

The Didone typefaces (formally known as Modern or neoclassical) have the characteristics of having a abrupt contrast of thick and thin. The axis of the curves is vertical, and the ascenders of the lower-case serif are horizontal. There are often no brackets. Other examples except from Claritas are e.g. Bodoni/Didot/Walbaum.
