New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm currently trying to talk somebody (trying to reproduce late 1700s style in an English text) out of using the OpenType ›Contextuals‹ feature as a tool to substitute every (!) non-final
s by an
ſ -- as ſ usage is a lot more complex than that.
Now what this issue reminded me of was having seen a
longs_s ligature in an English text once -- an
ß, effectively. 17th or 18th century, I guess. I just can't find it. Un-ligated
s are everywhere, but that's not what I'm looking for.
But maybe I'm on the wrong track... has anyone else seen something like this and would be willing to post a specimen?
thanks in advance!
