Garamont's fonts represent a milestone in the history of type design, a touchstone to which font designers have been returning ever since. EB Garamond is an open source project to create a revival of Claude Garamont's famous humanist typeface from the mid-16th century. Its design reproduces the original by Claude Garamont: The source for the letterforms is a scan of a specimen known as the "Berner specimen", which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project: Egenolff-Berner Garamond.
