Didone is a typeface category that emerged in the late 18th century. The category is also known as modern or modern face (in contrast to old style serif, which dates to the late medieval era).

Didone is characterized by:
– Straight (hairline) serifs without brackets.
– Vertical orientation of weight axes. (The vertical parts of letters are thick.)
– Strong contrast between thick and thin lines. (Horizontal parts of letters are thin in comparison to the vertical parts.)
– An unornamented, “modern” appearance.

Didones are marked by very high contrast between thick and thin strokes, hairline serifs, and a strong vertical axis. Best used large, they evoke modernism and high-class.
