Based on Claude Garamond's elegant 16th-century typeface, this particular cut of Garamond was developed in 1924 at Stempel AG, a German type foundry. This versatile serif typeface has a small x-height, so more words fit on a line. Short ascenders and descenders allow lines to be set closer together. Its italic (or Kursiv) style is particularly graceful. The very readable and versatile Garamond works well for long blocks of text, reports, magazines, books, manuals, correspondence, and slides.
