One of Zuzanas favorite typefaces is Bodoni. she was attracted to its clean lines and geometric shapes. However, she felt that Bodoni at a small size was tough to read.

Filosofia is Zuzanas interpretation of Bodoni’s work. She incorporated features such as a bulging round serif. She also reduced the stroke contrast in the regular weight (to combate the “dazzling” found in digital versions of Bodoni). The Filosofia grand family is more delicate and refined then the regulars.

Filosophia is Italian for Philosophy

Filosofia
Serif: flat and thin.
Use: regular for text and grand for headlines.
characteritics: personally I think that this is a very “soft” version of bodoni. it reads smoothly and cleanly.
