This Fat Face originally known under the generic name Fette Antiqua (“Fat Roman”) was first cast by Bauer in 1850. Also available from other foundries. Haas had the design as Normande neu (not to be confused with Berthold’s Normande (1860). There is also an italic, Fette Kursiv (1851). [Reichardt]
The Roman was digitally revived by Peter Wiegel and extended with Cyrillic and Greek characters and two additional weights, a Shadow and a Hollow (outlined) version. Released as Fette Bauersche Antiqua (used for the sample) under the SIL Open Font License in 2012.
