Default Authentic Harry Potter Fonts vs. Imitations

Hi... this is my first post !!

After months of attempting to identify the specialty typefonts used in the Harry Potter Books a google search for the typesetter Brad Walrod led me to this forum.

The only reference and credit given to a typefont designer was for the text font Adobe Garamond 11.5pt/12pt on the final page of the books.

I would like to know the names of all the fonts used and see credit given to the designers of these specialty fonts as well.

The only font I've identified... that I can be sure of is Hagrid's.

Hagrid's Handwriting is actually FeltTip Roman by Mark Simonson
http://www.marksimonson.com/article/...-of-imitations, however there is a "downloadable freeware clone" being circulated on every HP website...as "The fonts used in the Harry Potter series are actually avaliable for your use! Hagrid's Handwriting Font [ Download ] © June 2002 by Missy Mille.

I'd like to know the names and designers of the authentic fonts that represent Sirius Black, Dumbledore, Arthur and Molly Weasley, Ron, Harry, Hermione, Severus, Lupin, etc.

Can anyone help me ?
