I need to experiment with typefaces with small caps. I know Mrs. Eaves has a pretty good small caps set, any others?
Gosh, most Opentype faces these days have them... what sort of look are you after? If you want something akin to Mrs. Eaves, I recommend Baskerville. It's much more legible and practical. I think the Monotype version has SC. Adobe Caslon Pro is also a viable option, though not exactly the same historical style. Baskerville is a Rationalist face, whereas the older Caslon is a Transitional.
Re: Mrs Eaves—it has a tiny x-height. It's just not a very practical book typeface. It's OK for wedding invitations, that is if you want it to look like every wedding invitation from the past 12 years.
Minion Pro has perfectly balanced small caps.
