changing a UILabel font crashes

I am trying to write a line of code that changes the font on a UILabel like this:

labelDescription.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Baskerville" size:12.0];

But this line crashes with the exception:

Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'Invalid parameter not satisfying: font != nil'

This same line of code works if I use the font name as Helvetica or Arial, but not Baskervillem which is a font that shows up when I command-T on Interface Builder.

I don't necessarily have to do this programatically, I could just set it on Interface Builder, but I don't believe that is possible, is it?

Any help here?
