The Saltzburg family (and its companion family Miracolo) are decorative fonts based on a typestyle that was in use in the late 1800s, and found in publications of the era. Our original samples came from a printed publication dated 1902, although slightly modified with the addition of new special characters and symbols. By mixing and matching characters from between these 12 fonts, you can create a wide range of lovely decorative text. The font families Saltzburg, Miracolo and Miracolo Deuce are all companion typefaces which can be used interchangeably. As each character set is different, you will have to choose which font is most suitable for the type that you are setting, and then mix and match in order to fine-tune your text. To give you more versatility when setting vowel characters in any of the font families Saltzburg, Miracolo and Miracolo Deuce there are numerous vowel variations which you can choose from. You can quickly view all of the alternate characters in Saltzburg by selecting Variations link on the website family page for Saltzburg. To read details of the different vowels available, please read the notes and tips for the Miracolo font family. The numbers in the Saltzburg and Miracolo Deuce fonts have a slightly smaller width than those characters in the regular Miracolo. To achieve the distinctive st ligatures, Mac users type shift-option-v. PC users can achieve the ligatures by typing Alt-0172. In Saltzburg the @ symbol has been shifted vertically so that it works best with the lowercase characters, for use in e-mail addresses and the like. For best effect when setting this symbol within uppercase text, it is suggested that you shift the symbol upwards slightly.. In the PC version of this font family the style names are slightly different from those used in the Mac versions. But the fonts are otherwise identical.
