Lubalin Graph - Ligatures/alternates

belleisle's picture

I am trying to buy a digital version of Lubalin Graph with all the Ligatures/alternates, as seen in this image from an old Letraset catalogue. I know Elsner+Flake have drawn an alternate version of Avant Garde, but they don't seem to have got round to LG yet.
Can anyone help?

yeah these have not been digitized. havent heard any plans of them to be done... i have utilized them by redrawing them myself.

Lubalin put the ligatures in as an aid to his own predilection for doing tightly spaced, fully justified headlines. The ligatures were a design solution to the problem of making two or more lines of type come out to the same length without changing spacing, size or proportions.
