Fonts.com: small caps for Times New Roman
Fonts.com: all styles of Times New Roman
Plantin and Starling are based on the work of two designers who likely influenced Times New Roman: Robert Granjon and William Starling Burgess. Bembo Book comes from an unrelated source — Italian Renaissance typography — but it has a similar stately gait and an attractive italic. See also a brief history of Times New Roman.
One caveat if you use the links above to shop for more styles of Times New Roman. Monotype Imaging, the company that owns Times New Roman, actually has two different Times New Roman families. There’s the regular Times New Roman, which matches the original metal version of the font. But then there’s also Times New Roman PS, which matches the version that ships with Mac and Windows as a system font. The “PS” version has technical adjustments that make it incompatible with the regular Times New Roman styles.
What does this mean? You can get small caps for the system-font version of Times New Roman (aka Times New Roman PS) but that’s it. If you want to use the other weights in the family (medium, semibold, extra-bold), you’ll have to buy new versions of all your Times New Roman styles so they’ll be compatible with each other.
Confusing? Yes. Your fault? No.
