# [Tex/LaTex] New environment to change font for some book quotations

fonts

I am working on a document that requires block quotes from books, some of which are from the American Colonial period. I found an answer close to what I need that suggested the following in the preamble:

\usepackage[veryoldstyle]{kpfonts}


It's exactly the font I need, but just not globally.

So what I'm trying to do it call the [veryoldstyle] part just for quotes from old book that use that type. I was thinking of trying some sort of \newenvironment command but I am not getting anywhere. Does anyone have any suggestions?

May be like this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\newenvironment{myoldstyle}{%
\bgroup
\par
\fontfamily{jkpkvos}\selectfont\small
}
{%
\par\egroup
}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{myoldstyle}
\lipsum[2]
\end{myoldstyle}
\lipsum[3]
\end{document}


Or as a quote:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\newenvironment{myoldstyle}{%
\begin{quote}
\fontfamily{jkpkvos}\selectfont\small
}
{%
\end{quote}
}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[2]
\begin{myoldstyle}
\lipsum[2]
\end{myoldstyle}
\lipsum[2]
\end{document}


This can be made more glamorous using etoolbox goodies and make all quote environments to use this font. But this job is left out.
