Re: [PPLetterpress] Digital Ligatures
- I was not aware of this in InDesign.
Bummer…all the time I spent inserting ligatures.
Ignorance. Thank you for the lesson.

This would make a great T-shirt design.

Just $16.99/mo. or less.

The only way to get this across to publishers is the old-fashioned
way: boycott and demonstrate. Pace out front of your favorite
bookstore carrying a sign with an "f" and "l" with a red circle and
cross through them. Hand out broadsides. Check shoppers' bags for
ligatureless reading matter and implore them to return it and get
their money back.
I am doing my part. I am circling every missed opportunity for a
ligature in every book I received for Christmas and I'm sending them
back to the publishers as "unreadable" and telling them to get their
(and here's my favorite ligature) fhit together.
