idot is a name given to a group of typefaces named for the famous French printing and type producing family of the same name. The classification is known as modern typeface.

Garamond is the name given to a group of old style serif typefaces named for the punch-cutter Claude Garamond (c. 1480-1561). A majority of the typefaces named Garamond are more closely related to the work of a later punch-cutter Jean Jannon. A direct relationship between Garamond’s letterforms and contemporary type can be found in the Roman versions of the typefaces Sabon, Granjon, Stempel Garamond, and Adobe Garamond.

This book is introducing the contribution of Didot by showing the difference between Didot and Garamond, the old style type.
