| 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.
