Sarabande is a painstaking reproduction of Jean Jannon's famous “Garamond” of 1621—also known as “Caractères de l’université.” Whereas the original was intended for setting French and Latin text only, Sarabande has all standard international characters and diacritics, along with a Euro symbol. (It lacks certain other modern characters, though, such as @, #, and ¢.) The typeface comes with two styles: a roman and a true italic.
