typoz types..

anybody that can (or will) recommend a nice font with a beautiful FFL-combination... i forget the English word for it... in Swedish it is "ligatur" (so Bruhn would now)

i amn't quite fond of the FFL in Adobe Berthold Bodoni Medium Italic Expert...

any suggestions?

Yes it's like that ...Lars works in mysterious ways ;)
I'll ask him about it when he gets back from his vacation.

Jack, Lars is back and he gave this answer (losely translated):
" This was normal practise in classic typography - the bend on the first "f" in a "ff" ligature. Also, it was not uncommon for the second bow in "m" to be lower than the first.

Wow Peter, what an interesting nugget of information.

I think Storm Type's Jannon Text Moderne has lots of nice ligatures too.

Jannon is really nice. Most everything from Storm is amazing:-)
