American Garamond

American Garamond is a font from Bitstream library. Eighty years ago the mannered work of the seventeenth century Protestant punchcutter, Jean Jannon of Sedan, was confused with that of Garamont and was widely copied as his. This version, designed for American Typefounders by Thomas Maitland Cleland and Morris Fuller Benton, and released in 1919, has become the standard. English, Italian and ITC Garamond and French Garamont are all modeled on the Jannon series. Their aggressive styling contrasts with the classical serenity of the true Garamond designs.
