Bodoni fan club

Friday 26 July 2002

Things you find on the net: On the website freie.klasse.de [Forum für Kunst und Kommunikation] is this page with links to something called Bodoni rap in streaming audio, in two versions​—​street mix and a capella. I find rap lyrics in English hard to follow, and my German is very rusty.

'ATF Bodoni' typeface

I sense this is a song about the heroic deeds of Giambattista Bodoni, official printer in the court of Parma from 1768. I admire what Bodoni did for typography, but he’s a weird subject for rap. And in German — that’s extra weird. Sprechen Sie Deutsche? Please tell me, is this what’s going on here?
