I've been looking for a good font for my Kindle for several months now, and it looks like I've finally found it! 

I am seriously impressed. Aver is both classic and sexy.

Fantastic Work! I like how the lining figures still slightly vary in height, and the et ligature looks almost physically sexy. You surely did not waste the three years.

Thank you :) I made the lining figures more like old style figures, I am glad you like them. And I did take a few breaks in the work on this but from start to finish, three years transpired :) Glad you like it :)

Oh, wow that is looking awesome :love: and so many glyphs :faint:
Very elegant and I like how the numbers are done in old style (I forgot the proper name for it… lol)

The only thing that jumped to my eye was the ; the dots seem a bit off center/hanging to the right too much. Feels like it might be better if they moved just a tiny bit over to the left, tiny tiny bit :B

Thanks so much, perhaps on an update I could work on the alignment of diacritical marks. I appreciate the advice. :D

Looks like you paid attention to the details carefully, nice work! I especially like the Q and the @. Also plus points for the old style figures (I'm not sure if that's correct in English) and the double acute accents :D It's so frustrating when I find a good font, but there are no accented letters.

Thanks so much :) Yeah, I like doing the @ symbol like that in my typefaces :) I have received a few comments about it, I am glad people have noticed it. I try to include as many accents and extra characters as possible, it is hard though because in my native English we don't use them. :)

wow... So much! Really nice font. Also, I've had the phrase "be nice to the cats" embedded in my brain for three days.

Ha ha, awesome. I am glad you like my font :D The phrase was inspired by a friend of mine who is a moderator on the Abstract Fonts forum [link] , going by the handle koeiekat, who was very helpful to me in making this font. "be nice to the cats" is part of koeiekat's signature on the forum [link] :D

Yes I have to admit I have put a lot of work into it. I started this typeface in 2009, so even though of course there were breif periods when the work was on a 'hold' of sorts, technically I have worked on this font for three years. I think it is probably my best work yet. :D Thank you so much :D

My jaw literally dropped the first time I saw it. Amazing work. I can't even articulate how beautiful this font is. It's interesting how your style comes through with this one even though it's a serif if that makes any sense. I'm stumbling over my words with this, so please forgive me. It's one of the finest serif fonts I've ever seen. Very feminine. I'm going to save up my moolah and get this one at some point here very soon. <3

Very nice work! It has a bit of that Old Standard/Baskerville charm. Clever looking @ symbol as well.

Thanks so much. Making the @ symbols in that style is something I like to do, it is one way I feel I can make my designs unique :)

Usually type designers go nuts on the et symbol. It's tricky business to make the @ symbol look balanced but I think you pulled it off. Maybe the italic @ is slightly too light on the top right.

Right? Who goes nuts on the @ symbol? lol Me I guess. XD

>"Maybe the italic @ is slightly too light on the top right."
Nice observation, I think the italic @ symbol could use some attention. Actually, I think it is not typical for the @ symbol to be any different in the italic font than it is in the regular font, but otherwise it just did not look appropriate, hence I did give the symbol an italic slant as well. But I will be sure to give it some attention when I work on the font again.

Indeed, though I always thought it's a bit of a weird practice. On the other hand, symbols like the copyright mark would just look silly in italic and I guess the @ can cound as a similar kind of mark. I guess it completely depends on the font.

I did do some after-finishing touches to the design of the typeface and the fonts, which included some alteration to the @ glyph, but I must admit, this did not include an adjustment to the right side bearings. Consciencely, my justification for this is, when placed next to some glyphs, the space between the top right corner is adequate, but I really think it was decided by my subconscience. Stubborn old fool! The fact that spacing there is quite light there when next to many other glyphs still remains, and it really is rather tight on the whole. Sigh. Thank you for the keen insight. I am pleased even more so now, that this was really your only gripe with the typeface. XD
