Bookmania, the ultimate digital Bookman typeface finally available.

I’ve never been a big fan of Bookman, but it’s undeniably a big fat apple slice of Americana, and it’s been picked apart and hacked to mush by amateurs and pseudo-professionals for years. If anyone was going to do a proper, complete digital version, it would be Mark Simonson. 5 weights, 35 discretionary ligatures, 680 swashes, 3,177 glyphs, all backed up by affectionate research (PDF). Like Mark says, it’s his “love letter to Bookman”.
