li­bre­baskerville – LaTeX sup­port for the Li­bre Baskerville fam­ily of fonts

Li­bre Baskerville is de­signed by Pablo Im­pal­lari.

It is pri­mar­ily in­tended to be a web font but is also at­trac­tive as a TeX font. As there is cur­rently no bold italic vari­ant, an ar­ti­fi­cially slanted ver­sion of the bold vari­ant has been gen­er­ated.
