    [REQUEST] Garamond 3 LT Pro + Garamond MT Pro

    Really just looking for a re-up of this excellent post http://www.printroot.com/forum/f24/[fonts]-garamond-3-lt-pro-garamond-mt-pro-filling-request-21844/ but it's frowned upon to dig up ancient posts.

    Absolutely a fan of Claude Garamont and would appreciate these cuts.

    Unfortunately these digital cuts are quite a poor thing compared to the metal typefaces...

    It makes a great difference between the fonts you mentioned and my own private collection of garamond typefaces. The first are drawn and digitized for all-size purpose and are generally flat, shape/contour is too "clean", and most of all color, if you know what I mean, is quite weak. But that's something you can't avoid.
    My own private garamond collection - garamond no. 3, no. 6, no. 9, no. 49, no. 100 - which I got from the photo typesetting and re-worked in otf format, reflects all the metal "imperfection" and once you try them on offset printing, you would never get back to standard digital typography. I'll get some specimen ready and post them,

    Actually, not quite the same... In fact, what I'm talking about is the poor quality of current digitized versions of old'n'glorious typefaces, but obviously, because otherwise it would take a great deal of time and money to digitize fonts which should be sold at almost unaffordable prices. Anyway, still some little improvements are possible in a medium range, so why not?

    Any chance you could open up the collection and share your privates with us?

    I'm afraid I can't... I'm sorry for that, but please, be comprehensive, it took me many years to get my collection set up and tested for printing, and now I'am using it only for a range of selected works worldwide. Anyway I'll post a specimen as soon as ready, just to come up to some comments from you, guys .....
