Claude Garamond, King of Typographers

[ 6 Jul 2018 ]
 
If the name Garamond is known by almost everyone today, it is certainly due in part to the outstanding quality of the Greek typefaces (grecs du roi ) that he designed for the royally-ordered printing of the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius of Caesarea (Paris, Robert Estienne, 1544), the first history of the Church ever printed !

A kingly book for sure !
