For several years now, I've been trying to get my hands on the BA Math Font from micropress. But I can't find anyone who has it, or who is willing to sell it to me (including the original authors). And the online ordering form at the referenced website doesn't do anything -- I've tried it. As far as I can tell, this font has disappeared from the face of the planet! :)

Does anyone know where I can buy this font? Anyone have any information that might help me to track this down?

    Downvoted because the link you provided clearly has an order form page marked.

    @Ryan the order form is unsecured, thus it is not advisable even to try to buy anything there.

  • @Ryan As I stated, the order form doesn't work. I tried it -- even though it's unsecured.

  • @SaturnsEye Thanks, but those are the Times New Roman and Helvetica based fonts. Not the Baskerville ones.

Okay I did some digging and it sounds like the company is in fact out of business.

Here are a few alternatives people have suggested:

If those won't work the only thing it appears might get the original Baskerville Math Font is contacting Michael Vulis, Associate Professor at CUNY. It is my understanding he either worked for, or was the founder of, Micropress. I didn't see any info as to whether Professor Vulis was receptive to such requests but you can certainly try.

    Thanks. Yes, I have tried to contact Michael Vulis, but haven't been successful.
