Garamond: Type Specimen



This type specimen book is a homage to Garamond, meant to showcase the beauty and versatility of the typeface, as well as illuminate the life of its creator, Claude Garamond. In addition, the history, characteristics, variations, and usage of Garamond are explored. Based on the history of the typeface, I chose letterpress blocks as a recurring design element throughout the book.
