This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX support

Juan Pablo del Peral (juan at huertatipografica.com.ar) for Huerta
Tipografica (http://www.huertatipografica.com.ar).

preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirrors.ctan.org. Unzip
the archive at the root of an appropriate texmf tree, likely a

LuaLaTeX and xeLaTeX users who might prefer type1 fonts or who wish
to avoid fontspec may use the type1 option.

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to scale the

The default figure style is proportional-lining, but the oldstyle
(or osf) option will change the default to OldStyle figures and
the tabular (or tf) option will change the default to tabular
(monospaced) figures. 

Font encodings supported are OT1, T1, LY1, TS1 and LGR.

The black option to either package activates that series as the
default bold font and the medium option
activates that series as the default regular font.
Options thin, light and extrabold are
similarly available but for the Sans family only.

Commands \Alegreya, \AlegreyaBlack, \AlegreyaMedium,
\AlegreyaSans, \AlegreyaSansThin, \AlegreyaSansLight,
\AlegreyaSansMedium, \AlegreyaSansExtraBold, and
\AlegreyaSansBlack select the specified family.

Commands \AlegreyaLF, \AlegreyaOsF, \AlegreyaTLF, and
\AlegreyaTOsF allow for localized use of non-default
figures. Superior or inferior numbers are available using
\sufigures, \infigures, \textsu{...} or \textin{...}.
Command \useosf switches the default figure style to
old-style figures; this is primarily for use after calling a
math package with lining figures as the default.

ale­greya – Ale­greya fonts with sup­port

The Ale­greya fonts are de­signed by Juan Pablo del Peral for Huerta Ti­pogrĂ¡­fica. Ale­greya is a type­face orig­i­nally in­tended for lit­er­a­ture. It con­veys a dy­namic and var­ied rhythm which fa­cil­i­tates the read­ing of long texts. The italic has just as much care and at­ten­tion to de­tail in the de­sign as the ro­man. Bold, black, small caps and five num­ber styles are avail­able.
