type composing service

I am setting a book of fifty poems five line each in Lydian. One of the poems requires some italic type. I do not have any. I heard someone mention there are services which provide already set texts for this kind of situation. Can anyone enlighten me?

Thank you

Lydian italic, though primarily an ATF handset face, also was linecast using Intertype mats, and some sort of Monotype mat (but in the case of the Monotype version, maybe just for individual types, not composition).
What remains of the ATF Lydian mats is mostly in the hands of Greg Walters, and I don’t think it has ever been done at Dale Guild. There is still a LOT of Lydian out there.

Swamp Press can cast Lydian italic in monotype.
