Pulp Fiction Font
The Pulp Fiction movie poster appears to have been designed in a font known as Aachen Bold.
Aachen Bold is a variation of Aachen, a relatively popular slab-serif typeface created by Colin Brignall, Jim Wasco, and Alan Meeks. The font is published through International Typeface Corporation (ITC). It was first released in 1969.
Aachen Bold font stands out for its beautiful bold strokes. That makes it particularly suitable for using on titles of a movie, website, newspaper, or magazine. Other design projects where you can apply this font to include on quotes, t-shirt printing, book covers, and homeware designs.
In addition to Aachen Bold, the original font in the Pulp Fiction movie seems to have been inspired by several other typefaces. Examples include Neue Aachen and Times New Roman.
Neue Aachen comes from the same family as Aachen. Which implies that it’s also designed by Colin Brignall, Jim Wasco, and Alan Meeks, and published by ITC.
Times New Roman needs no introduction. The font was designed by Stanley Morison and Victor Lardent, and subsequently commissioned in 1931 by the British newspaper The Times. It was published by font foundry Monotype Imaging.
