Yesterday someone asked me a rather curious question that has to do with LaTeX and typography. Specifically the person is interested in being able to change the font from Times New Roman to thereby saving paper, but in turn that allows write texts with mathematical notation including use of boldface.
He said that read an article about how $400 million (of dollars) could be saved from the government budget in the US if decides to try to use Garamond typeface. In his own case he tries to bringing down the number of pages in his articles changing the font from Times to EBGaramond. The problem with Garamond is, as you should know, the boldface is an invention from the 19th century, and the fashion of the boldfaces still goes on.
But Garamond, or the most typefaces created under that name are designs from the 16th century, a pretty earlier than the union of the bolds to the typographic republic. So, a good design or reconstruction of the Garamond (or Granjon: A typographer with which historically has been confused Garamond's work to the point that many reconstructions currently sold under the name Garamond correspond with the work not of Garamond but Granjon.) work deliberately omits the boldfaces. A good design that is typographically consistent skips boldface when composing the text in Garamond.
Returning to the point, that typography can recommend for this case? It needs consuming less space on paper than Times, but including boldface and allow composing mathematical text with all the necessary notation. As I see the mean language will be English and they use to compile with
