ABOUT







Textism: Granjon

Granjon is designed by George W. Jones, based on Claude Garamond and Robert Granjon (ca. 1530). Textism calls Linotype's digital version anemic though: Originally a Linotype interpretation of early-16th century designs by Claude Garamond and Robert Granjon, this is another of the great hard-working book typefaces of the last hundred years. Unfortunately the digital version of Granjon is rather thin and anemic, its fine details wasted except at large sizes.
