A very obvious one I suspect, but when I try to do the following the small caps are over-ruled by the boldface, so I get lowercase rhubarb rhubarb. Is there an easy way to get \scshape\bfseries?

\documentclass[10pt]{article}    
\begin{document}
\bfseries\scshape rhubarb rhubarb
\end{document}

    You need a font which provides such a combination. Commented Feb 17, 2013 at 10:50

    Not all fonts have boldface small caps; in particular the Computer Modern fonts don't have this combination.

  • thanks @egreg. Is there a reference document where I can find which fonts do? Commented Feb 17, 2013 at 10:57

    I've never seen such a document, but I've seen a few fonts that do have bold small caps (e.g. Minion, Scala) or bold faux small caps (e.g. the TeX Gyre fonts).

Some fonts support this. The incomplete list is:

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage{libertine}
%\usepackage{mathpazo}
%\usepackage{newtxtext}
%\usepackage{charter}
%\usepackage{kpfonts}
%\usepackage{fourier}
%\usepackage[garamond]{mathdesign}
%\usepackage{pxfonts}
\begin{document}
\bfseries\scshape Rhubarb Rhubarb
\end{document}
