This is a listing of all glyphs contained in the
OpenType variants that may only be accessible via OpenType-aware
Each basic character (“A”) is followed by Unicode variants of the same
character (Á, Ä…), then OpenType variants (small caps, alternates,
ligatures…). This way you can see all the variations on a single
character in one place.

Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply
place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.
Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web
design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.
Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the
@font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the
For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.
MyFonts offers three types of webfont licenses: Annual, Pay Once, and Pay As You Go. Only one of these
three would be available for a given webfont. Click here to
You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.
We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit
may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you
are wholly responsible for it.
HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?
There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on
Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally
have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month.
Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.
If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the
campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can
true up at the end of each calendar month.
You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook,
eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.
An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue
counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.
Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise,
each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.
For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow
It took me a long time, but I think I now understand why people of my generation and older feel the need to frame current events in an historical context or precedents, while most of the young couldn't care less about what happened ten years ago, let alone centuries back. After living for a few decades, you get to a point when time seems to be moving quite fast, and it’s humbling to see that your entire existence so far can be summed up in a paragraph or two which may or may not be useful to whoever ends up reading the stuff anyhow. I suppose one way to cope with the serenity of aging is trying to convince yourself that your life and work are really an extension of millenia of a species striving to accept, adapt to, and improve the human condition through advancing the many facets of civilization -- basically making things more understandable and comfortable for ourselves and each other while we go about doing whatever it is we are trying to do. And when you do finally convince yourself of that, history becomes a source of much solace and even a little premonition, so you end up spending more time there.
Going far back into the history of what I do, one can easily see that for the most part it was ruled by the quill. Western civilization’s writing was done with quill pens for more than thirteen centuries and with newer instruments for about two. By the mid-18th century, the height of the quill experience, various calligraphy techniques could be discerned and writing styles were arranged in distinct categories. There are many old books that showcase the history of it all. I recommend looking at some whenever the urge comes calling and you have to get away from backlit worlds.
Multiple sources usually help me get a better perspective on the range of a specific script genre, so many books served as reference to this quill font of mine. Late 17th century French and Spanish professional calligraphy guides were great aides in understanding the ornamental scope of what the scribes were doing back then. The French books, with their showings of the Ronde, Bâtarde and Coulée alphabets, were the ones I referenced the most. So I decided to name the font Auberge, a French word for hotel or inn, because I really felt like a guest in different French locales (and times) when I going through all that stuff.
Because it is multi-sourced, Auberge does not strictly fit in a distinct quill pen category. Instead, it shows strong hints of both Bâtarde and Coulée alphabets. And like most of my fonts, it is an exercise in going overboard with alternates, swashes, and ornamental devices. Having worked with it for a while, I find it most suitable for display calligraphic setting in general, but it works especially well for things like wine labels and event invitations. It also shines in the original quill pen application purpose, which of course was stationery. Also, as it just occurred to me, if you find yourself in a situation where you have to describe your entire life in 50 words or less, you may as well make it look good and swashy, so Auberge would probably be a good fit there as well.
This is one quill script that no large bird had to die for.
A few technical notes
The Auberge Script Pro version includes 1800 glyphs, everything is included there. Also latin language support. We recommend you to use the latest design application to have full access to alternates, swashes, small caps, ornaments, etc. The images from the gallery uses this version. For better results use the fonts with “liga” feature on.
During 2014 the early develop of Auberge Script was chosen to be part of Tipos Latinos, the most important type exhibition in South America.
Sudtipos is a new collective Argentinian type foundry. New blood, new attitude. A joint venture of four professional designers with lots of expertise in different areas like branding, packaging design, corporate identity, television and new media. “The foundry, or collective as we prefer to designate it, started because of that — packaging, editorial or brand designers making fonts for real designers” Alejandro Paul, one of the company’s founders, said in his Creative Characters interview. Alejandro “Ale” Paul made a name for himself drawing and programming some of the most intricate script fonts ever digitized. “My experience in branding product packaging was a natural catalyst for me to be interested in scripts and seek like-minded people for the collective.” The collective’s bestselling scripts include Bowling Script, Horizontes Script and Hipster Script Pro, which was named one of MyFonts’ most popular fonts of 2012, and was recognized by both Typographica and Type Directors Club that same year. “Our aim is to always be graphic designers making typefaces for graphic designers,” Ale said. “We try not to lose that particular focus. We’re always thinking about how to make a graphic designer’s work easier when it comes to using the type element in his or her design.”
