# Kerning in italic contractions when using EB Garamond

I'm using EB Garamond to typeset some text and find that the kerning in italic contractions can be a bit generous for my taste. Consider this MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{ebgaramond-maths}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\begin{document}
\noindent I’m It's I've\\
{\itshape I’m It's I've}\\

• With both xelatex and lualatex, I get warnings such as Font shape 'T1/EBGaramond(0)/m/it' undefined and therefore the italic words show up in roman font. Not sure how to try the otf version, so I'll try to contact the author... – user1362373 Jul 30 at 17:47
