The Garamond typeface we know today has many variations, designed by different font designers inspired by the original punch cuts designed By Claude Garamond in the Sixteenth Century. Claude Garamond had a unique style of designing type that did not exactly resemble a scribe’s handwriting, rather a kind of typeface which even though boasted a calligraphist feel, was easier to use with printing presses. GARAMOND

Claude Garamond’s typefaces were used in the printing of many books in Roman and Latin. He was once commissioned to design a typeface solely for the purpose of printing books in Greek, the typeface was called “Grec du Roi” and was only used in the printing of books by the Greek Government.
