Garamond

8/Nov/11

Originally commissioned to create a typeface for the French king Francis I, Claude Garamond’s work became prestigious and recognisable. However, Garamond has become more of a ‘category among serif text faces.’

I don’t usually like ‘fancy’ serif  fonts but I quite like this one, even when italicised, in fact it’s one of the only fonts that i enjoy looking at in italic.
