Archive Garamond is a typeface roughly based on the designs of Claude Garamond (ca. 1480 ĘC 1561) , a French publisher and a leading typeface designer of that period.
While the majority of contemporary digital interpretations of the "Garamond types" are cleaner and more polished versions of that genre, Archive Garamond tries to keep the rough nature which was typical in the early days of printing. Archive Garamond has a rather unique, distinctive temperament which is even more emphasised with the preserved non-uniformity, such as irregular glyph shapes or a variable baseline.
Although Archive Garamond was clearly made to be used for display sizes it works surprisingly well in text.
A Professional version of the typeface contains all glyphs, including the advanced typographic forms, such as different sets of figures, small caps, swashes, historical forms, etc. The font also enables full use of the OpenType features.
