avoid fontspec may use the type1 option.

librebaskerville – 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 font. As there is currently no bold italic variant, an artificially slanted version of the bold variant has been generated.
