Con- | ceived as a private type for the Officina Bodoni in | Verona, Italy, Dante was originally cut only for hand | composition by Charles Malin, the famous Parisian | punch cutter, between 1946 and 1952. Its first use was in | an edition of Boccaccio’s Trattatello in laude di Dante | that appeared in 1954. The Monotype Corporation’s | version of Dante followed in 1957. Although modeled | on the Aldine type used for Pietro Cardinal Bembo’s | treatise De Aetna in 1495, Dante is a thoroughly modern | interpretation of the venerable face. | Composed by Creative Graphics, | Allentown, Pennsylvania | Printed and bound by R. R. Donnelley & Sons, | Harrisonburg, Virginia | Designed by Anthea Lingeman’. [230-232]: blank.
