  Description     : Nice font for typesetting books

I used this font when a published a book a few months ago, and would
love to have all the tools needed to build the book from its docbook
source in Debian.

There are many versions and sources for this font.  I used the version
available from <URL: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/download/crimson >
for my book, while there is also a version available from
<URL: https://github.com/google/fonts/tree/master/ofl/crimsontext >.

Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen
