  Virtually years in the making, Metroscript is an outgrowth of a style of letterform that I've used in my design work literally dozens of times, usually for connecting words such as "and the", "from", etc. This style has been described as a "baseball" or "sports" script—which is true—but its applicablity is really much wider than that.
  Created in OpenType, Metroscript is chock full of features that will expand its usability such as; 6 different tail styles with variable lengths; letters that "know" when they're at the beginning or at the end of a word or following a certain other letter—and change accordingly; plus literally dozens of special characters, swashes, ligatures, accents and foreign characters all fitting together in a way that makes each word seem as if it was lettered by hand.
