URW Garamond No. 8 [Michael Sharpe]

A set of four Garamond fonts developed by URW in 2000, and released in the public domain bu URW. There are free type 1 fonts and free truetype fontsi (see also here).

The fonts were modified and fixed, first by Ralf Stubner, then by Gael Varoquaux (in 2009), and finally by Michael Sharpe (University of California at San Diego) in 2012 who added old style figures and small caps. Michael also provides full TeX support. The font was renamed NewG8 by Michael Sharpe who developed it further between 2013 and 2017.

Uli Stiehl points out that URW Garamond No. 8 is a digitization of Garamond Antiqua by Compugraphic, also called CG Garamond Antiqua. When Agfa took over Compugraphic and Monotype took over Agfa, CG Garamond survived in the Monotype collection. It was also in the Hewlett Packard (HP) Laserjet printers.
