Assuming that you are happy with the Computer Modern fonts,
all you need to do is to make use of (e.g.,) CMBXTI10
(Computer Modern Bold eXended Text Italic 10pt), as in :

	\font \bolditalicfont = cmbxti10
	This will appear in bold italics

If you prefer to use system fonts, then XeTeX rather
than TeX will be your engine of choice, whereupon
you could write (for example)

	\font \bolditalicfont = "Palatino Linotype Bold Italic"
	This will appear in bold italics
