1689 GLC Garamond Pro was published by GLC. 1689 GLC Garamond Pro contains 2 styles and family package options.  

This typeface family was inspired by a set of fonts, designed in the Garamond style, used for an edition of Remarques critiques sur les Ĺ“uvres d'Horace by "D.A.E.P.", published in Paris in 1689 by two different booksellers: Deny Thierry and Claude Barbin. We can see some differences in comparison with our "pure" Garamond (see our 1592 GLC Garamond), particularly in the lowercase of the Normal style and the uppercase of the Italic. Unfortunately, we know neither the name of the punchcutter, nor that of the printer.

This complete font set contains small caps, fractions all the way up to 1999/1999, historical and standard ligatures, and all of the fleurons contained in the edition (Normal style only). The alphabet covers all Western, Eastern and Central European languages (including Celtic diacritics) and Turkish.
