Publisher: The Fontry
FHA Eccentric French was designed by Frank Atkinson, Michael Adkins, Frank Smith and released by The Fontry. FHA Eccentric French contains 1 style. p > The curves are vintage and the serifs are big. They're so huge that for many years I never had the nerve to tackle this intimidating typeface. However when fellow signmaker Frank Smith laid the groundwork for this appealing typeface by Frank H. Atkinson, I couldn't pass on the chance to take it from paper to keyboard. After all, at over 100 years of ages, I felt this alphabet had never been provided a proper, digital treatment.

So how did this face make it through the last century? Well, for those who don't know the history, it endured in Atkinson's ubiquitous book, Sign Painting, released initially in 1908, the generational requirement for anybody thinking about sign-related type design. The layouts and lettering treatments in this book have actually affected many designers for more than a hundred years, but a lot of haunting to me was this odd face with the big serifs.

Well, I'm haunted no more. The work is done, the kerning is complete, and absolutely nothing but a mouse-click separates an older idea from the contemporary world.

It's large, it's big, and with those insane serifs, it is absolutely eccentric-!!!
