Baskerville Smackdown!

Has anyone on Typophile ever proposed a proper smackdown between the complete Baskerville systems of Emigre and StormType?

(It has only come onto my radar because of a small upcoming identity project for an English antiques gallery for whom Baskerville would be an obvious choice. They have a small range of print, web, and signage materials to recreate...)

Anyone want to weigh in on the pros/cons of using both complete systems for print, 3D, and web applications?

Nevermind, this topic really isn’t worth.

If you're going to be setting more than a few lines of copy, use Storm's. Mrs. Eaves doesn't work for text — in either size. Wish there was a Mrs Eaves M.
