Garamond

  1. 1. GaramondGaramond is the name given to a group of old-style serif typefacesnamed after the punch-cutter Claude Garamond (c. 1480–1561). Most ofthe Garamond faces are more closely related to the work of a later punch-cutter, Jean Jannon. A direct relationship between Garamond’s letterformsand contemporary type can be found in the Roman versions of the type-faces Adobe Garamond, Granjon, Sabon, and Stempel Garamond.Garamond’s letterforms convey a sense of fluidity and consistency. Someunique characteristics in his letters are the small bowl of the a and thesmall eye of the e. Long extenders and top serifs have a downward slope.Garamond is considered to be among the most legible and read-able serif typefaces for use in print (offline) applications.It has also been noted to be one of the most eco-friendly major fontswhen it comes to ink usage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Garamond
