Auberge Script is a modern digitalized font family with a very interesting history behind its creation. It is a brainchild of its designer – the Argentine Alejandro Paul’s love and fascination towards the quill pen writing of the past that is itself one of the foundations of the Western civilization. It took Alejandro a great effort in researching old specimens, sources and guides. Of them the ones he used and referenced the most were French. In his own words Ale so immersed into the atmosphere of the time that he almost felt like a guest in a French inn of the Middle Ages, hence the name “Auberge” (French for hotel or locale).
With so much love and effort invested in it there was no way that Auberge turned out to be your ordinary script. In fact, it is as artistic, elegant and romantic as you can imagine. Its fancy ornaments, alternates and swashes account for its distinctive individual appearance. Its calligraphic beauty makes Auberge Script font family perfect for applications in event invitations, special purpose cards like valentines, labels or simply anywhere where love and romance are felt and required and should be pointed out. The merits of the script were immediately noticed and it was selected to be a part of the Tipos Latinos 2014 – the most prestigious type exhibition of South America.
Auberge Script font family comes in seven different weights – Pro, Basic One to Five and Mixed caps. The Pro variant contains not less than 1800 glyphs with language support for Latin based languages. Many great features are provided like swashes, alternates, small caps, ornaments, etc. for which OpenType savvy software is needed.
Auberge is the next in the line of the finest typefaces presented to us by Alejandro Paul and his Sudtipos type foundry. It is another of his lessons of how to combine imagination with skill and reminds us yet again why Alejandro is such a prominent figure in the field of the type design, having won numerous awards and worked for many of the biggest companies around. Here are other examples of his astonishing work: Bowling Script, Jugo Script, Courtesy Script Pro, Festival Script.
