What is the Giambattista font?

Giambattista is a long-time project of mine finally come to an end.
After redesigning all of Giambattista Bodoni’s work and then some additional cuts I started a long time ago with this Non-Bodoni Bodoni.
The idea came to me while redesigning the original Chancellerosa (chancery). I thought Bodoni just didn’t have the right approach to a chancery, this was just not his cup of tea! Maybe that is why he never used the Chancellerosa very much for his own printshop in Parma. So I thought someone has to design a script, that looks like Bodoni could have designed it but is more lively than his. More…
Over the years I have been working on and off on the face and it turned out to become three typefaces which can be freely mixed. Here is my modern version of a script in the style of Giambattista, meant as an hommage, I called it Giambattista.

You're probably thinking - Is Giambattista available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Giambattista is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Giambattista, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Giambattista and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Giambattista is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Giambattista and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Giambattista. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Giambattista for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Giambattista Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Giambattista remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
