So I was reviewing the bit of lettering I did last weekend and really liked how the "r" came out. And looking over my latest proofs, I felt like the italics of ductus needed some more fun in the /r. So now we have connect script style r's!
Is it historically accurate? Heck no. But, I think it has a better rhythm and it just looks pretty!
I'm debating if I want to set them as default liga (like how /fl and /fi are) or discretionary ligatures where the user needs to turn them on. Thoughts? (review the attachment to give an assessment)

Time for Ductus Script!
It's fun, but I find it extremely hard to read. It is not distinctive enough, especially on the bold, the double r could be mistaken for n, w, s.
Also, it's a bit conflicting with letters like s as you show it in "errors". BUT I think it works really well as a last letter, like on "beer". I think it could be a good Open-Type feature, an alternate r ending words.

@Hubert Florin Thanks for the comments -- I agree using the /e_r at the end of words makes the most sense!
