One might speculate that FHA Condensed French most likely started life as wood type for display screens, headings and posters. The exaggerated sharp serifs and condensed types were not uncommon for that duration. At some point, sign painters chose up Condensed French included their own character. At the end of the 19th century, Frank H. Atkinson included Condensed French in his samples of lettering for his book, "Sign Painting, A Complete Manual." This book ended up being one of the definitive guides for signwriting and hand lettering.

In 1999, Mike Adkins digitized Condensed to add to our Atkinson collection. For its re-release, Condensed French has been updated with more language support, ligatures, and OpenType alternates. It has real vintage character but still plays well in more modern styles. A font for all seasons, the condensed kinds and sharp serifs suit every design from wildwest days posters and weird movie credits to Christmas ads and Mother's Day cards. While I can't actually see FHA Condensed French as the font for phone aps or computer game text, it will supply effect to logos, branding, and item labeling.
