ABOUT







Frank H. Atkinson

Sign painter from the art nouveau era, who lived in Chicago and worked mostly for Cadillac. In 1908, he published Sign Painting, a book that influenced hand lettering and signpainting for many years afterwards. The following digital fonts are based on his designs:

  • FHA Sign DeVinne (2015, Michael Gene Adkins, James L Stirling).
  • FHA Tuscan Roman (2014, Michael Gene Adkins, James L Stirling).
  • FHA Nicholson French (2012). An art nouveau typeface digitized by The Fontry.
  • FHA Condensed French (2012, by Michael Gene Adkins and James L. Stirling) is based on Frank H. Atkinson's examples.
  • FHA French Eccentric (2009), by Frank Smith and Michael Gene Adkins. FHA Eccentric French Normal (2008) is free at Dafont.
  • FHA Modernized Ideal Classic (2011) by Michael Gene Adkins and James L. Stirling.
  • Bulletin Stub (The Fontry).
  • Book Poster (2010). A series of fonts at The Fontry.
  • Beauvoir (1993, David Nalle).
  • French Plug (2007, HiH).
  • Payzant Pen NF (Nick Curtis) is based on an Atkinson design shown in A Show at Sho-Cards: Comprehensive, Complete, Concise (1918).
  • Atkinson Eccenteric, Atkinson Boomtown and Atkinson Egyptian, all made by David Nalle at Scriptorium.
  • Still by The Fontry: the Broken Poster family (2010). In 2013, Michael Gene Adkins and James Stirling followed this up with the layered system Broken Gothic, which is based on Book Poster as well.
