First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.
I photographed it semi-blurry and forgot where it's from.

Or any similar and existing typefaces that emulate the fatty one?

I am sorry I don’t know the book. This appears to be a lettering sample (not type), but it’s emulating a typeface: Poster Bodoni. Check out the Related Typefaces on that page to see more in this style, and don’t miss this great post on the history of the Fat Face by Jennifer Kennard.

Oh how wonderful. Jennifer Kennard's article on the history of the fat face is one of my fave posts. Thank for reminding me of this gem.

And thank you for your expertise!
