Garamond Premier Pro downloadDesigner: Robert Slimbach
Publisher: Adobe
Garamond Premier Pro had its genesis in 1988, when Adobe senior type designer Robert Slimbach visited the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp, Belgium, to study its collection of Claude Garamond’s metal punches and type designs.

Garamond, a French punchcutter, produced a refined array of book types in the mid-1500s that combined an unprecedented degree of balance and elegance, and stand as a pinnacle of beauty and practicality in typefounding. While fine-tuning Adobe Garamond, which was released in 1989, as a useful design suited to modern publishing, Slimbach started planning an entirely new interpretation of Garamond’s designs based on the large range of unique sizes he had seen at the Plantin-Moretus and on the comparable italics cut by Robert Granjon, Garamond’s contemporary.

By modeling Garamond Premier Pro on these hand-cut type sizes, Slimbach retained the varied optical size characteristics and freshness of the original designs while creating a practical 21st-century type family.

Garamond Premier Pro contains an extensive glyph complement, including central European, Cyrillic, and Greek characters and is offered in five weights ranging from light to bold.
