    Cover for the French single release of The Ramone’s signature song Blitzkrieg Bop, in France under Philips Records. B-side is Havana Affair.

    Fotostar’s Buxom and Letraset’s Fat Shadow are almost impossible to tell apart. Going with my gut on a Letraset double-shot of Fat Shadow and Compacta.

    Typefaces

    • Buxom
    • Compacta

    1. A different post caused me to take a closer look at Baby Fat & co. again. You are right: Unlike Baby Fat and Buxom, Buxom and Fat Shadow are virtually identical. I decided we don’t need a separate typeface entry for the Letraset adaptation, and merged it into Buxom. Fat Shadow is now an alias for Buxom.

      Here’s a Letragraphica sheet for Fat Shadow 72pt (image by CraftyTransfers):
