BA Math is a family of serif fonts, inspired by elegant and
graphically perfect design of John Baskerville (17061775).
Baskerville's typeface is classified as "transitional", positioned
between the typefaces of William Caslon (Old style) and Giambattista
Bodoni (Modern).
MicroPress' BA Math comprises the fonts necessary for mathematical
typesetting (math italics,
math, calligraphic and oldstyle symbols, and extensions) in normal
and bold weights. BA Math consists 15 manually hinted Type 1 fonts.
The family
also includes all OT1
and T1
encoded text virtual fonts of various shapes,
as well as fonts with most useful glyphs of the
TS1 encoding.
Additionally this collection provides necessary files for
using the fonts with plain TeX, LaTeX 2.09 and LaTeX 2e.
BA Math is a full replacement for the Computer Modern fonts.
To typeset your plain or LaTeX 2.09 documents with
BA Math, just specify a BA Math based format. To typeset
LaTeX 2e documents, include the bamath style package
in the document preamble.
First released in June 2000.
Current version 1.2.
