The Garamond-Typefaces are the most famous in history. This work is a tribute to Claude Garamont. The first book shows the history of the typeface, the Stempel AG foundry and the famous punchcutter. At the end we show some present-designs using Garamond. The second book is a detailed analysis about the Stempel Garamond LT Std Roman. The front side of the first book shows a portrait of Claude Garamont. The portrait was made by hand with a nyloprint in the hand composition. The book spine of the second book is opened to show the analysis-character. It was important for us to represent the beauty of the typeface in the book-design.
