Background

First released by D. Stempel AG in 1925, Stempel Garamond™ was based on the Egenolff-Berner specimen of 1592 and was therefore a revival of the genuine Garamond types. It is one of the most famous Garamond interpretations, and since its introduction in 1925, it has been one of the most frequently used text fonts. Stempel Garamond has its own unique temperament, with a rhythm and sharpness that set it apart from other Garamonds. Stempel Garamond™ is available in several weights with small caps, Old style Figures, and Central European characters.
