This archive contains a Brush-Script-Italic font, created with
TypeSmith 2.5a modifying heavily a freely distributable Type-1
font from Publisher's Paradise BBS (205) 882-6886; the modified
font is also freely distributable.  I am not familiar with Agfa
Compugraphic fonts, but I hope that the .type file is also good.

BrushScriptItalic.dmf       Original TypeSmith font   file
BrushScriptItalic.fm        Original TypeSmith metric file
BrushScriptItalic.pfb       PostScript Type-1 binary font file
BrushScriptItalic.afm       PostScript Type-1 metric file
BrushScriptItalic.type      Compugraphic font file
TeXBrushScriptItalic.dmf    Font file (TypeSmith) modified for TeX
TeXBrushScriptItalic.pfb    Font file (Type-1)    modified for TeX

A few words about the files "modified for TeX": the PostScript
fonts contain several characters, and some of them can be
"unencoded" - i.e. not linked to a specific numeric code, and
thus not printables.  In that way you can "reencode" the font
to make printables (or "encoded", or active) some characters
at the expense of removing some others.  In the files called
BrushScriptItalic.*, the accented characters are active; in
the TeXBrushScriptItalic.* files, these accented characters
have been removed, and other characters (the accents that were
used to build them) are active.

If you want to install the BrushScriptItalic fonts for TeX, you
need the release 2e of the macro package LaTeX; download from the
CTAN sites (e.g. ftp.shsu.edu or one of its mirrors) the auxiliary
macro package "fontinst"; READ CAREFULLY THE INSTRUCTIONS; then
run fontinst on the supplied afm file.  Run pltotf to generate the
.tfm files, and vptovf to generate the "virtual fonts" files.
Modify your psfonts.map adding a line to download the .pfb file to
the printer when needed, and that's all.

Try with a TeX file containing the statements:

\input T1pbs.fd % The font definition file (assuming you have
                % called 'pbs' the BrushScript font) in T1 (Cork)
                % encoding.  T1pbs.fd has been generated by
                % the fontinst package.
\newcommand{\bsi}[2]{\fontsize{#1}{#2}\usefont{T1}{pbs}{xl}{n}}
\begin{document}
\bsi{14pt}{17.5pt}  % Use BrushScriptItalic at 14pt with 17.5pt
                    % baseline.

DON'T CHANGE YOUR FONT in the document!  You don't have bold or
sans-serif variants for BrushScriptItalic!

Enjoy...
