The italics cut by Jean Jannon have yet another style, even more baroque than his romans. (“Baroque” may be the wrong word, given some of the very different types from the 17th century that have been described as baroque by type historians, but it seems to me to capture the slightly more ornate style of Jeannon’s types compared to ...

Type designer Jean Jannon (76) (15801658) created the typeface on which most modern Garamond revivals are based. Jannon worked more than 80 years after Garamond, and was the rst to release revivals of the earlier Frenchmans work. During this period, English gunsmith-turned-type-designer William Caslon I (72) (16921766) founded the Caslon Type Foundry. He was one of the few wealthy type designers.

Garamond #3 (Morris F. Benton, 1936): Morris F. Benton's Garamond appeared in 1936 and is based on the forms of Jean Jannon, which already displayed characteristics of the transitional style. Garamond #3 is available in four weights with Euro symbol.
After Garamond's death, Christophe Plantin from Antwerp, the Le Bé type foundry and the Frankfurt foundry Egenolff-Bermer acquire a large proportion of Garamond's original punches and matrices. Garamond (or: Garamont) typefaces used nowadays should in many cases be attributed to Jean Jannon (1580-1635).
If you like fonts cut by Claude Garamond (or Garamont), Robert Granjon, or Jean Jannon, then you will like Slimbach’s Arno Pro. For typographic ligatures in general roman and italic faces, little can compare with Zuzana Ličko’s lavish Mrs Eaves (1996), which sports some 71 typographic ligatures. It is based on (the original) Baskerville.
This is the entire paragraph about John Cumming. It is both incomplete and misleading as to his accomplishments. His death date is unknown but it was after 1901 when he cut Montaigne for Bruce Rogers. Cumming designed and cut faces for the Boston Type Foundry 1881–1884 and the Dickinson Type Foundry 1884–c.1901.
If you are considering using one or the other in book design, then William Franklin Adams’ answer is very good for assessing the strengths and weaknesses of each. I would add to it that Garamond Premier Pro is the most formal, classic and possibly...
Misjudging the popularity of the series, it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a total of 320 alphabets. In late 1941, just ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in book form under the title 100 Alphabets, by Alf R. Becker.
