There are numerous digitizations, by Linotype/Adobe (1987–2002, based on the ITC version?), Bitstream (1990–1993, extended by Tilde), The Font Company, and URW++/Elsner+Flake. URW’s version (1994) is the only one to feature more than 1 style (Regular, Bold, Initials, Outline, Relief).
James Edmondson’s Hobeaux (2015) is a homage and extension.
