Absolute mastery with the pixel, gue! The attention to detail, the thin-thick variation, the letter forms are all so brilliantly executed. I keep staring at the shapes. I love them so. They make great characters at pixel level, but the pixel lover in me wants to blow them up at huge size. I think I will make a poster of this for my wall. The 3 and the ! are my favorites. Thank you, guentersen.

Pixel perfect. An instant classic.

One hell of an hypnotic font.
You are a pixel placing genius. Squint your eyes and it's perfect.

That's good ol' Garamond

There are many different interpretations of Garamond. I think Adobe Garamond Pro is pretty close.

Hi Saberrider!

Thanks for your research.
I am an enthusiastic user of Adobe Garamond Pro ... and it doesn't fit.
I added a sample of AdobeGaramondPro.

The one from the Cees-Sample has a characteristic t with a straight-bottom-hook and a clean geometric triangle on the top.
It's a little wider than AGPro (maybe that's because it's a bold font?)

maybe you've got another tip?

I had to do nasty things to the kerning to make the text fit the sample. ;)

Thanks thal!

i've been searching for this for ages!
Comment by guentersen 18th january 2009
I am amazed at the consideration that went into this! Superbly done.

I LOVE Adobe Garamond Pro!! It's my favorite font in the entire universe!!
Sorry for freaking out.
By the way, (fun fact for you) all seven of the American versions of Harry Potter are set in AGaramond.
Great font, by the way. You won't make uppercase, though? :(

hi xenophilius,
thanks for your comment.
adobe garamond pro is an adorable font and i enjoyed it while reading the seven books of the young wizard.

and if you choose your book by the font then let me say that the book of mr. cees nooteboom is the one of your choice (in the sampled german issue as shown above) it' s my favourite piece of literature.

uppercase would drive me nuts because of the kerning. but i'm sure there is a pixel pusher on fontstruct who will succeed.
