Adobe Garamond and math symbols in LaTeX
With this package, you can use Adobe Garamond fonts in LaTeX
documents, both in text and mathematical equations. A customized
version of Donald Knuth's math fonts is used such that all math
symbols nicely match the Adobe Garamond fonts.
I did this in 2001 when I was writing my Ph.D. thesis, which involved
several days of fiddling with the MathKit scripts and fine-tuning lots of
parameters for Metafont. I intended to make it publicly available but never
got to it until now.
Examples: [55 kB pdf] and my PhD thesis. Adobe Acrobat cannot handle bitmap fonts
very well; try using ggv for viewing pdf files.
It is based on Alan Hoenig's MathKit

- TeX/LaTeX with a standard texmf tree installed on your system
- Adobe Garamond fonts PFB and AFM files for "Regular", "Regular
Small Caps", "Titling Capitals", "Italic", "Semi Bold". I purchased
5 fonts in a package: Touch
of Classics, for around USD 80. It's not cheap, I know, but you will have
something exclusive in return, instead of the Computer Modern and
Times Roman that everybody uses.
- MathKit should not be installed on your system. I made some changes
in MathKit's metafont files that might conflict with a standard
adobe_garamond_math.tar.gz (211 kB).
I have tested it on a Linux system with Fedora Core 3 and I have used it
on Fedora Core 1 and RedHat 7.1. It should work with any modern TeX
distribution which uses a texmf tree. I appreciate feedback, for example if
you like it or if you can't get it running.
If I see that this package is downloaded a lot, I might think of:
- Cooperating with a standard MathKit installation;
- Supporting bold-italic;
- Converting the generated bitmap fonts with the math symbols into type-1
