Evolving in the late eighteenth century at the royal press of the Italian printer Giambattista Bodoni, it achieved sudden popularity for newspaper and general advertising in the 1940s.
History: Unknown (have info? Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org). Label scan courtesy of collector Joaquin Lopez of Mexico.
