Garamond-Math Ver. 2019-02-05

Garamond-Math is an open type math font matching the EB Garamond (Octavio Pardo) and EB Garamond (Georg Mayr-Duffner). Many mathematical symbols are derived from other fonts (see below), others are made from scratch. The metric is generated with a python script.

Notes

  • Important notes for this version
    • Fixed various wrong mappings, add italic h.var.
      • Fraktur is (temporarily) not supported, Because (1) Originally they come from Gyre Termes Math and GUST and OFL are not completely compatible; (2) The glyphs are not modified at all, so there is in principle no need to include it (one can use range option in unicode-math)
      • Default \mathbb is swapped with original StylisticSet=1.
  • Blackboard (\mathbb):
    • Glyphs based on XITS Math are also available. However, the crossings and endpoints of strokes are rounded to fit the style of EB Garamond. They can be accessed via StylisticSet=1.
  • Script (\mathscr):
    • Default glyphs are from XITS Math. The weight (especially for bold) and crossings and endpoints of strokes are modified.
      • CM glyphs with a little modification are also available with StylisticSet=3
  • Sans serif, typewriter: from Libertinus Math. This font has low x-height as Garamond do, though the bold italic Greeks are unavailable.
  • Other glyphs available: display \int, \sum, \underbrace, big delimiters, \widehat, arrows, binary relations derived, circled characters, etc, from the original EB Garamond.
  • Stylistic sets: (StylisticSet={#1,#2,...} in unicode-math package)
- `1` → XITS Blackboard `\mathbb`.
- `2` → Curved `\partial`, which is in style with almost all other fonts.
- `3` → CM `\mathcal` (lowercase unavailble)
- `4` → Use semi-bold for `\symbf`
- `5` → Use extra-bold for `\symbf`
- `6` → horizontal "bar" for `\hbar`
- `7` → `\int` variant
- `8` → Garamond-compatible `\mathcal` (experimental)
- `9` → `\tilde` variant
- `10` → out-bending italic h

Known Issue

  • Currently only usable for XeTeX (with unicode-math). OTHER ENGINES (EX. LuaTeX, MS Word) WILL PRODUCE VERY BAD SPACINGS.
  • Various spacing problems. Though math fonts technically should not be kerned, some pairs looks very ugly (Ex. VA); sometimes sub/superscript may also have same problem.
  • Fake optical size. EB Garamond does not contain a complete set of glyphs (normal + bold + optical size of both weights). The "optical size ssty" is made by interpolating different weights at the present (without this, the double script is too thin to be readable).

Technical Staff

  • This font is still under development, any components might be updated at any time. Issues, bug reports, forks and other contributions are welcome.

garamond-math – An OTF math font matching EB Garamond

This is an open type math font matching EB Garamond (Octavio Pardo) and EB Garamond (Georg Mayr-Duffner). Many mathematical symbols are derived from other fonts, others are made from scratch. The metric is generated with a python script.

The font is best used with and the unicode-math package. Other engines (e.g. Lua; also: MS Word) are likely to produce unsatifactory spacings.

This font is still under development, so do not expect it to be free of bugs. Any component might be updated at any time. Issues, bug reports, forks, and other contributions are welcome.
