I'm looking for the EB Garamond font on LaTeX. Precisely that. And my search, on Google and on TeX.SX, hasn't returned anything, yet.

I'm aware that I can have URW-Garamond No. 8 on LaTeX, e.g., \usepackage[urw-garamond]{mathdesign}, and I know I can have EB Garamond on XeTeX, but these are not what I'm looking for.

In the meantime, an ebgaramond package has arrived on CTAN. It also features Type 1 fonts, and thus can be used with pdflatex, too. Use it via


Package options for old style/lining figures, and proportional/tabular figures are osf, lf, p, and t, among others. There is even a microtype configuration for this font.


The font EB Garamond, by Georg Duffner, may be obtained (among other sites) from the author's own website.

It's an OpenType font; after installing it, you'll need to use either Xe(La)TeX or Lua(La)TeX to load it. Or, follow the link in the comment provided by Marco Daniel and use Harrold Cavendish's method to make it usable under pdf(La)TeX.

  • EB Garamond is now accesible from texlive and a doc having the \usepackage{ebgaramond} line in the preamble compiles with pdflatex. Commented Feb 26 at 16:46
  • @MátéWierdl - Thanks. The availability of the ebgaramond package is also mentioned in the other answer to the query at hand. The latter answer was posted about nine months after I posted mine (back in June 2012). Put differently, the ebgaramond package appears to have come on the scene sometime between June 2012 and March 2013.

    I just noticed that the mathdesign package doesn't throw an error for the ebgaramond (or any other) option, and it gives some kind of default math alphabet which is not "garamond"-like which would be a slender and forward leaning math font. Luckily we can have \usepackage{ebgaramond}{newtxmath} for a well fitting math font for ebgaramond. Commented Feb 27 at 0:34
