Here's the README file in the distribution of ebgaramond:

This is the README for the ebgaramond package, version 0.15 (2013-05-22).

This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX support for the EB Garamond family of fonts, designed by Georg Duffner.

EB Garamond is a revival of the 16th century fonts designed by Claude Garamont. The source for the letterforms is a scan of a specimen known as the "Berner specimen", which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project: Egenolff-Berner Garamond.

Currently only upright and italic variants in medium weight are available.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant TeX system unzip the file tex-archive/install/fonts/ebgaramond.tds.zip at the root of an appropriate texmf tree, likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map files by enabling the Map file EBGaramond.map.

To use, add


to the preamble of your document. Options include:

oldstyle,osf old-style figures
lining,nf,lf lining figures

proportional,p varying-width figures tabular,t fixed-width figures

The defaults are oldstyle and proportional.

Available shapes include:

it italic
sc small caps
scit italic small caps

Slanted variants are not supported; the italic variants will be automatically substituted. Font encodings supported are OT1, T1, LY1 and TS1.

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to adjust fontsizes. The type1 option may be used by xelatex or lualatex users who prefer to use type1 fonts or to avoid fontspec.

Commands \oldstylenums{...} and \liningnums{...} are defined to allow for local use of old-style figures or lining figures, respectively. Similarly, \tabularnums{...} and \proportionalnums{...} allow for local use of monospaced or varying-width figures, respectively.

Superior numbers (for footnote markers) are available using \sufigures or \textsu{...}. Swash italic glyphs (for some letters) are available using \swshape or \textsw{...}.

Command \textin{...} produces decorative initials; currently only the following glyphs are available: A, D, F, G, L, N, O, Q, T and X.

A configuration file for microtype usage is included.

The original fonts are available at http://www.georgduffner.at/ebgaramond/ and are licensed under the SIL Open Font License, (version 1.1); the text may be found in the doc directory. Font charts may be found in the doc directory.

The type1 versions were created using cfftot1. The support files were created using autoinst and are licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License. The maintainer of this package is Bob Tennent (rdt at cs.queensu.ca)
