Which Baskerville?
0

I'm looking for a Baskerville (or similar) for display use. The font family should contain normal to heavy weights.

Any suggestions?

Thanks:-)

If it doesn't have to be too Baskerville, Mrs Eaves is the prettiest - although you'll have to manually kern it up the wazoo. If you can drift further I might look towards Bell as well.

BTW, display Baskervilles generally come from the Fry's lineage, not the authentic JB branch. Just sayin'.

Have a look at František Štorm’s version of Baskerville.

Unfortunately, Matthieu Cortat's http://Bonesana doesn't seem to have any heavy weights. It has ornamented capitals, though, which may be suited for display use.

Also take a look at Bulmer.
