The Stempel foundry in Germany produced this version of Garamond in 1925 as a replica of a typeface of a French punchcutter Claude Garamond (middle of the 16th century).
This design has an angular incised appearance which is unlike other Garamond types. It is also slightly heavier in weight, and is highly readable as a text face.
Well suited for a wide range of applications and treatments. Original Garamond is the Bitstream version of Stempel Garamond. More…
Cyrillic version was developed for ParaType in 2002 by Gayaneh Bagdasaryan..
