Compendium script

digital type

Compendium Script was the follow-up to Ale Paul's incredibly successful Burgues font. (Anyone who has attended a wedding or browsed bridal magazines after the release of this typeface - will be VERY familiar with this font.) Inspired by the elegant, Spencerian penmanship and detail that is infused in each letterform/glyph, it was only fitting to build a type showcase around the etiquette, culture and lure of the American Southeast.

Utilizing the curves of each swashed letterform as a groundwork, the pages of this interactive showcase offer a glimpse into a softer more genteel time of manner and type.
