I got a postcard the other day from some friends who had been to Albania. They wondered if they could design the albanian ligatures for a typeface I've been working on, and if not, why. The answer is partly because it has already been launched and secondly I know nothing about these ligatures (or digraphs?). I looked them up on Diacritics and decodeunicode, and yes, there they were, but no indication they were to be designed specifically as an ﬁ or ﬂ. Have any of You seen more unique solutions to this? Would it be interesting to add special ligatures as alternatives, or is it simply not a good idea? Are there any Albanians on this board? Tungjatjeta?
