Virga – font trio

Fonts

virga_font

Virga is a trio of fonts: one a long connecting script, one hand-lettered caps, and one a more formal sans-serif. They each work great on their own, but they also play nicely together!

Each lowercase letter in Virga Script has a short stroke leading into the letter, allowing them all to start a word with a little bit of flair. Not to mention, there are 3 entry and 3 exit swashes mapped to the bracket keys, so you can make the beginnings and ends of your words even more dramatic!

Virga Script, Virga Casual, and Virga Sans each contain over 200 accented characters for foreign language support (including English, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Romanian, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, Esperanto, Czech, Dutch, Welsh, Filipino, Turkish, and more!)

Virga Script contains OpenType features (20 stylistic alternate characters). In order to use these alternates, you need to install the OTF version of the font, and your software needs to be able to access OpenType features.

Some programs have OpenType feature access built in (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, CorelDraw, QuarkXpress 7+, and more). Many other programs that support Unicode will allow you to import OpenType alternates by copying them from Character Map (PC) or Font Book (Mac) and pasting them into your program.
