HistorySome of the most popular typefaces in history are those based on the types of the sixteenth-century printer, publisher, and type designer Claude Garamond, whose sixteenth-century types were modeled on those of Venetian printers from the end of the previous century. ITC Garamond, drawn by Tony Stan for the International Typeface Corporation, was released in 1976-1977. In this version, the sixteenth-century Garamond types have been redrawn to fit twentieth-century expectations, including a larger x-height, a broader range of weights plus related condensed faces, and tighter letterspacing. ITC Garamond is popular for advertising, packaging, and newsletters.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
ITC Garamond Std Book
ITC Garamond Std Book Cond
ITC Garamond Std Book Narrow
ITC Garamond Std Lt
ITC Garamond Std Lt Cond
ITC Garamond Std Lt Narrow
ITC Garamond Std Ult
ITC Garamond Std Ult Cond
ITC Garamond Std Ult Narrow

On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
