Faces based on work by Garamond, his contemporary Granjon, and Jannon a bit
later, look more French to me than any other designs.

An interesting side note: Due to historical accident, the typeface used for
much French printing during and after the revolution was Baskerville, which
continues to be more popular in France than the UK. Go figure!
