On MC Word I’ve got a version of Garamond font that looks like this:

enter image description here

It looks different compared to urw-garamond as well as to other Garamond fonts I know so far (like EB Garamond, Cormorant Garamond or garamondx). The most catchy spots are for example the twirly "z" (if you look for Französisch above) or some capital letters that are not as inclined as the following small letters (see for example the "F" in Französisch or the "T" in The) in italic. None of the Garamond fonts I know have these traits.

Do you know the Garamond font version I’m talking about? Thank you for your help.

  • you can use pdffonts utility or your pdf reader (certainly acrobat reader) font menu to check what fonts are in a pdf document Aug 10, 2021 at 15:29
  • I just looked in Word and it seems to look like the one I have that simply has the font name Garamond so you could use the same name font with xelatex or lualatex. (it is from Monotype but a standard Windpws font I think) Aug 10, 2021 at 15:37
  • Thank you, I’ve done some further research, Monotype Garamond is exactly the font I need. Unfortunately, it doesn’t exist in the font catalogue … yet I haven’t figured out a way to get the font. Aug 10, 2021 at 19:01
