The documentation shows how to add a truetype font, and also shows how to add other fonts using AFM and PFB files. Is there any way I can add these fonts that I've been given in reportlab?  An example filename of one of these fonts is Sabon-BoldOsF.ps

I'm fairly sure we don't support .ps fonts or even the inclusion of .ps 
diagrams in ReportLab. Internally T1 fonts are expressed in a type of 
postscript so there might be software to convert from .ps to .pfb/.afm.
