Sorts Mill Jannon by chemoelectric Sorts Mill Jannon by chemoelectric
This is Sorts Mill Jannon version 0.1.

There are two kinds of typeface commonly referred to by the name ‘Garamond’. The first kind is based on the Renaissance types of Claude Garamond. The second kind is based on the early Baroque types of Jean Jannon, which are inspired by Garamond’s drawings and which for a long time were misidentified as belonging to Garamond himself.

As the name implies, Sorts Mill Jannon is a ‘Garamond’ of the second type. It is based on the ‘Garamont’ designed by Frederic Goudy in the 1920s.

It is free for both personal and commercial use. For details, see the file ‘COPYING’ in the zip packages.

(For explanations of the kinds of Garamond, see [link] and [link])

Fred Goudy sends thanks, too, from beyond the grave (it having been Halloween).

That's sweet of you ! I always have a soft point for garamond of different kinds.
But it is not a good fit for screen, or jpg compression do some damage ; it is readable but somehow lack of clarity and sharpness on the screen.

Sorts Mill Kis is my screen font. For example the serifs are flat and all have the same hinting and similar arrangement of on-curve bezier points; stems are straight and kept to the same small number of widths; heights and depths of characters are largely equal; etc.

I find Apple's rendering to be unclear, at least in the Windows version of their browser.

Everybody is using different algorithms and heuristics for font rendering. On my monitor the Jannon looks great when viewed with mupdf: [link]
In Adobe Reader it looks anemic, however.
