Paul Harpin noticed that many of the independent magazines produced by his friends were using signature Fatface type styles, a trend was happening, whether it was the terrific Eye magazine, the lovely Hole & Corner or the wonderful Rakes Progress.

Having designed the refined and elegant London Modern he wanted a headline face that could shout out loud. So he made his own version of a Fatface that took some character from the forms of London Modern, especially the ampersand and the numbers.

Step forward London Fatface, a stunning display face pairing robust stems and bowls with thin unbracketed serifs.

Paul Hickson got very, very excited by the idea, as he had designed many Fatface fonts early in his career at Letraset, Face and Quick Brown Fox.

An accompanying italic version is in development.
