NWT Bodoni is based on the letters as drawn in Manuale Tipografico, the book by punch-cutter and publisher Giambattista Bodoni. For Bodoni NWT, only the drawings of 9-12-point letters were used.
NWT Bodoni preserves the traditional features of Modern serifs: a strictly vertical stroke axis for the ovals; high contrast between stems and horizontal strokes; long, thin, unbracketed serifs.
Elena Novoselova, the designer of the face, created it specifically for text sizes. As a result it has lower contrast than existing Cyrillic versions of Bodoni and can be used for long texts. The typesetting is compact and even. Particularly noteworthy are the minuscule figures, the overall rhythm of the italic and the distinctive look of several symbols.
