this mailing list is dedicated to discussing the future development of
latex; it isn't therefore really suitable as a `help' address. the
most suitable place to ask for help is the usenet group comp.text.tex;
however, i would recommend some background reading before you start
`tex unbound' by alan hoenig has a lot of detail of the process of
integrating new font families.
`the latex graphics companion' also has a good chapter on the subject
and is highly recommended for graphics work (proceeds from its sales
also contribute to the latex project...).
the publisher, isbn, and other details are available from the question
on books in
(adding details of lipkin's book is on my `to do' list...)
