Book Antigua is only an imitation of Palatino. LaTeX gives you easy access to Palatino with the mathpazo package. An alternative could be the pxfonts package.

Best regards and welcome to the board

As already mentioned, there is no direct access to Book Antigua for LaTeX. But you can use the original Palatino type face. Consider the following example.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,english]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{pxfonts
}  % Postscript Type 1 font in Palatino style
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\Blinddocument
\end{document
}

Depending on your LaTeX distribution, missing packages may be installed automatically. Otherwise start the package manager of your LaTeX system install them subsequently.

### Re: Book Antiqua

Hi,

I would like to use the Antiqua typeface that can be seen here:
http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/antiqua/
For me it seems to be an ancient stuff, and I can't really get grips with it. I copied the files to the folders, but it doesn't seem to be enough. I use MikTeX 2.9 (64 bit) and Win7 (64 bit), and I'm not really an expert in this. Thank You in advance!
