I may have some of these answers in books and old issues of "Font &
Function" but they are all in my office at school. Can anyone provide any
of the following information:

1) Who designed Bookman and when?

2) If the swash variations were not part of the original design of Bookman,
who designed them and when?

3) When did Goudy design the Goudy Initials?

4) Who designed Fette Fraktur and when?

5) Who designed Bodoni (the version Adobe sells as just Bodoni) and when?

6) Who digitized Bembo for Adobe and when?

7) Who digitized ITC Franklin Gothic for Adobe and when?
