I'm looking for typefaces that have a lot of discretionary ligatures, more specifically a serif or calligraphic font of the fancy/classical sort.

I am already aware of:

  • Mrs. Eaves
  • DTL Fleischmann
  • Hoefler Text
  • Requiem

Am I missing any big names?

Zapfino has a lot of ligatures, but maybe not the sort of calligraphy you are looking for. –  Random O'Reilly May 22 at 9:38
