Ambrosia - Type 1 and TTF font by Dieter Steffman
=================================================


Version 1.3

This is a free font (never to be sold) released for public use by Dieter Steffmann.
This font is OK for commercial use, even as a web font. No derivatives are allowed.

A FREE FONT
The authoring artist, Dieter Steffmann, has no restrictions on his free fonts use (so, personal/commercial/charity work is OK, and you may use it as a #webfont, too), EXCEPT that he maintains his full Copyright worldwide, and therefore this font should not be modified or otherwise used to create a derivative font, and that this font should never be sold. The font or fonts in this archive is/are offered 'as is' without any warranty. This has been a quick synopsis on authorized use, more info is given below.

"Ambrosia" is a hand lettered, creatively penned, olde style curly art nouveau serif font with 213 glyphs, including support for European Latin characters in Latin-1 Supplement (90 characters), some Latin Extended-A (, , , & ), the in Latin Extended-B and the & SpacingModifier Letters, General Puncuation (17 characters), the in Letterlike Symbols, and the 'double s' often used in German is available in the Private Use Area.

Ambrosia comes in 2 font formats; Postscript Type 1 (PFM, PFB & AFM files), and TrueType (*.TTF).


ARCHIVE ORIGINATION:
This distribution archive was downloaded from Mr. Steffmann's official font catalog archive and updated with documentation and a new preview image by Doug Peters of Symbiotic Design for Font-Journal. This document has been created specifically for distribution with this font as a factual document to protect all parties. Any updates to this font or its distribution archive can be found there.

This archive has been enhanced with this note as a means to document the great works Dieter Steffmann has contributed to the world. This is done in the hopes that he will always be credited for his wonderful gifts to humanity, as many of his archives lack any documentation what-so-ever.

This archive can be found at the following URL on Font-Journal.com:

Please note that Dieter Steffmann has a great deal of typefaces on Font-Journal. To view it all you can search his name (or use the URL below):

Note however, that Mr. Steffmann created a large volume of free fonts (over 600). I have much to do to include and document each one of his fonts (both the ones I will add and the older ones that have previously been archived before I started documenting each one).

Perhaps Dieter Steffmann didn't include documentation in his distribution archives since he made them freely available to the public without much restriction on regular use and the license was specified on the download page. But then the license gets separated from the archive and as a designer myself, I like to retain proof that a free font I downloaded is as such (a free font with its conditions of use). It will take me a while, but I will be working to get them all updated with a text sample gif & documentation, eventually. Still, it's going to take a long time, as I administrate Font-Journal as a free online font repository and cataloged font archive only in my spare time, currently without assistance.

This font's official archive was originally downloaded from:
http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/

Specifically:
http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/samples/a/ambrosia.htm

...but that archive lacks the documentation and simple preview gif and I prefer that the license info, documentation and a preview image be included with my archives so that as a designer I can always reference this information should I require it (such as when some scammer come along and pretend the font is theirs and threaten a law suit).

Therefore, I have added a new sample gif to this very archive, along with adding this documentation which includes the license info and a quick history lesson so that it is not lost (as in typical Font-Journal fashion for new font additions). This gives professional graphic designers and marketers an easy way to prove that it is free and OK for commercial use, as well as learn a little of the history about the author, if they want, without too much trouble. All they have to do is keep the original archive somewhere (in case the website goes down).
