What is the Sarabande™ font?

Sarabande is a painstaking reproduction of Jean Jannon’s famous “Garamond” of 1621 — also known as “Caracteres de l’universite.” Whereas the original was intended for setting French and Latin text only, Sarabande has all standard international characters and diacritics, along with a Euro symbol. (There are however no characters for higher mathematics or logic, and the number of other unhistorical characters has also been kept to a practical minimum.) Sarabande comes with two styles: a roman and a true italic.
