Developed by Matevz Medja, Archive Garamond Pro is a serif font household. This typeface has four designs and was released by ArchiveType.

Archive Garamond is a typeface roughly based upon the designs of Claude Garamond (ca. 1480-- 1561), a French publisher and a leading typeface designer of that period. Garamond's impact on type style is reflected in many typefaces that are today understood under various industrial names.

While most of contemporary digital analyses of the "Garamond types" are cleaner and more sleek variations of that category, Archive Garamond attempts to keep the rough nature which was typical in the early days of printing. Archive Garamond has a rather special, distinctive character which is a lot more emphasized with the preserved non-uniformity, such as irregular glyph shapes or a variable baseline.

Although Archive Garamond was clearly made to be used for display sizes it works remarkably well in text.

The Pro version of Archive Garamond includes fully working advanced OpenType features:
- small caps
- oldstyle figures
- basic ligatures
- discretionary ligatures
- swash capitals
- historic forms
- stylistic alternatives
