    Hi there!

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a free (preferably open-source) font very similar to Garamond? I am specifically looking for a font with proper Bold, Italic, and Bold-Italic versions.

    All possible suggestions are more than welcome.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi,

    URW-Garamond is free (AFPL) in these 4 flavours. See the packages urwfonts* on:
    http://www.artifex.com/downloads/

    Read more about the license here:
    http://www.artifex.com/downloads/doc/Public.htm

    @Mod: It's really legal. There is no need to delete this link.


    Bye Bye

    Hey there. The URW Garamond is only available in Postscript and some other Adobe format. How can I use them without having intensive PostScript or LaTeX knowledge?

    Hi,

    there a two versions:

    PS-Type1: urwfonts_t1-1.40.tar.bz2
    as you can see by the "t1" in name

    Truetype: urwfonts-1.41.tar.bz2
    as you can see by no tt[f] in the name
    *scnr*

    7zip and a lot of other freeware archiver should be able to expand *.tar.bz2.

    Bye Bye

    Thanks so much! I didn't see the difference between the downloads. All my problems are now solved!
