    ART is the Benguiat Book. That b, as is, I can't trace. But it might be a modification, in which case I would opt for Bitstream's Caslon No.224 Book. But I wouldn't bet on that. No way.

    For the record, Benguiat Book, also known as Bankok (a Corel clone), is really the Souvenir by Morris Fuller Benton (1914) (cloned as the Southern by Corel). In the '70's the Benguiat was ITCâ??ized (mainly the lower case) by Benguiat and additional weights were added. The Souvenir, being designed 90 years ago is now free of copyright and can be found in many places as a free font. For example http://www.webpagepublicity.com/free-fonts/s/

    Both Souvenir and Benguiat are part of the font collection that came with Corel Draw 4. The Corel Benguiat clone Bankok.ttf can be googled with ease. So, I'd say opt for the Bankok.

    Still eager for the Benguiat? I thought most everybody had it as it came with so many Windows programs. So, also easy to find. The American Library Association comes to the rescue. Google tells us:

    ... Fonts used to create this Web site are Benguiat Book and Arial, which are assumed to be default-installed in most Windows applications. ...
    http://archive.ala.org/ascla/ascla_wpo.html - 8k - Cached - Similar pages

    At the bottom you'll find this:
    Fonts used to create this Web site are Benguiat Book and Arial, which are assumed to be default-installed in most Windows applications. They can be downloaded by clicking on this link [FONTS] . You must then use an archival program (like WinZip) to decompress the files and then install them on your system.

    As to be expected the link contains a zip with the Arial and the Benguiat.

    Also, you can use Bangle or Pegasus

    Two more copies. But these are worse. :( No kern pairs!
    The Bangle copy is the Bangle Normal. Just Bangle is a totally different font. The same goes for Pegasus, the Benguiat copy is the Pegasus Regular.
