About this font family

Claude Garamond’s late Texte (16 point) roman was the model used by George W. Jones when he designed this typeface for Linotype & Machinery in 1928. To avoid confusion with the Garamond romans based on Jannon’s seventeenth-century work, L&M called the typeface Granjon, after the designer of the italic used as a model, thus creating confusion with the typefaces based on Granjon’s romans, Plantin and Galliard.

Granjon is a little less crisp in cut than either Sabon, Stempel Gararmond or Berthold Garamond, but makes a magnificent and most readable text face, as shown in Reader’s Digest since its founding.
