Emigre has just released a Baskerville revival called "Mrs. Eaves." It has
the old-fashioned st and ct ligatures, small and "petite" caps, tabular
and old-style figures, fractions and ornaments. Don't know if it has a
long s. Price is $95. You can see samples on the Web at:
The promotional booklet is cute too. Very old style look and feel to it.
