fat face



Hi I am doing a large high profile signage project using Annlie. Can anybody point me to anything well known where it has been used. I have to do a presentation about it. Also does anybody know anything other than whats on the linotype site about its creator Fred Lambert? Any interesting stuff at all on Annlie would be gratefully recieved.

Thank you.

Uppercase, serif, fat face, extreme stroke variation, with some slab-like serifs and one numeral. And one VERY ODD bracket.

I know there must be hundreds of variations of the so-called English “fat faces”, but is there a close relative - or perfect match! - to these three letterforms? And yes, the resolution and detail in one of the attached files are unfortunately both lousy.

The smaller “4AD” file was taken from the official website. The “larger” one seems probably an stylization or maybe an earlier incarnation, as the counters seems to occupy much more space.

Thanks in advance and have a good day, typophiles!
