Hello. I am a publisher who will be re-publishing some old & out of print books. And I'm setting them in the original faces that were used. I am running into the problem, though, of not getting all the ligatures (or old style figures) I need in the font sets available. What do I do?
Should I contact these big name vendors and ask if they can design the missing ones I need?
Or should I hire a freelancer (work for hire) for this kind of stuff?
If the latter, what kinds of questions should I ask in order to know that I'll get someone who can do the job right?
Any input appreciated.
