Trinite f-ligatures

I'm considering to buy the font Trinité (No. 2) from Enschedé (http://www.teff.nl/fonts/trinite/trinite.html), but as far as I can see it has no fi (or other f-) ligature(s). I find this very strange, since I've seen examples of Trinité in use with the fi- and fl-ligatures. The other fonts from Enschedé seems to have several f-ligatures.

Does anyone have a point of view on this? Thank you!

There is no need for separate ligatures in Trinité.
The f seamlessy closes up to the i, j, l, h, k and b
if the glyphs are set without letterspacing.

I tought Trinité was so well designed that it didn't need any ligatures. With the n°2 the stem of the lowercase f always covers the point of the i.

You can see it clearly on the sample sheet (http://www.teff.nl/fonts/trinite/pdf/trinite_a3_print-600.pdf).

So don't use it to typeset Turkish :)
