Which Baskerville?

I'm looking for a Baskerville (or similar) for display use. The font family should contain normal to heavy weights.

Any suggestions?

If it doesn't have to be too Baskerville, Mrs Eaves is the prettiest - although you'll have to manually kern it up the wazoo. If you can drift further I might look towards Bell as well.

BTW, display Baskervilles generally come from the Fry's lineage, not the authentic JB branch. Just sayin'.

Have a look at František Štorm’s version of Baskerville.

Unfortunately, Matthieu Cortat's Bonesana doesn't seem to have any heavy weights. It has ornamented capitals, though, which may be suited for display use.

Also take a look at Bulmer.
