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 their 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
(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 has 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.
