In 1592, a typeface called Garamond was used in a book printed by the Parisian Jean Poupy. Later in the mid of 1928-1929, based on the Garamond typeface, George W. Jones designed an old-style serif typeface and named it ‘Granjon’. According to information, Jones designed it for the British Branch of the Linotype company. During that time (in the 1920s) There were many Garamonds on the market and that’s why Jones named his typeface ‘Granjon’. According to Wikipedia, the Granjon typeface is an old-style serif typeface and was popular in the metal type era. An american typographer Beatrice Lamberton Warde (September 20, 1900 – September 16, 1969, née Beatrice Becker) said that the Granjon typeface was her favorite revival of the French Renaissance typeface. The Granjon typeface was praised by another american typographer, type designer & writer Walter Valentine Tracy RDI (14 l)( 1914 – 28 April 1995). The roman version of Granjon typeface was from French type designer and publisher Claude Garamont (c. 1510–1561), and the italic version of it was from another French type designer and printer Robert Granjon (1513-November 16, 1589/March 1590).
