Patufet is the main character of one of the most famous folktales of Catalan tradition. Patufet is usually represented as a very small child the size of a rice grain, wearing a big red ‘barretina’ (Catalan traditional cap) so that his parents can better spot him around the place. He is curious and mischievous, until one day he decides to show the world that he is useful and reliable. Taking the character into account, Patufet type family shows itself as a very simple and humble Roman typeface intended to be useful and readable enough for text purposes. Traditional Patufet’s wooden sabots have been converted to slab serifs so as to set its characters firmly on the baseline.
