Despite my sans-serif typeface,my geometric lines and curvesare evident. I was finally re-leased to the world in 1927,inspiring a new modern ap-proach to fonts, hence mytrendy name. Some of myoriginal characteristics canbe found not in my ownletters, but in those of thetypeface Architype Renner.
Iʼm thankful that my designer 
avoided the unnecessarydecorative lines that someother typefaces possess.Without the design style that came from theGerman school of Bauhaus from1919-1933, Iwould not exist today. I owe my fame to theBauer Type Foundry, which commissioned
me out of a reaction to Ludwig & Mayerʼs
seminal Erbar of 1922, a typeface similar tomy own.
 
I owe the existence of my Old-Style serif-self to the letterpressand a 15th and 16th century punch-cutter. Claude in fact namedme after his own surname. Thank you, Claude, for my legibility and consistency. And without French King Francis I, my creator would never have been commissioned to create a Greek that would influence my future popularity. Thankfully the French Court adopted mRoman type so that I influenced France and Western Europe. I owe the fame I gained afterthe mastermind behind my fluid letter typepassed in 1561 to Christopher Plantin, Frenchprinter Jean Jannon and Cardinal Richelieu. And now that it’s 2012, you should check outmy 20th-century commercial, Garamond #3.
