What is the Monotype Garamond font?
Monotype Garamond is based on roman types cut by Jean Jannon in 1615. Jannon followed the designs of Claude Garamond which had been cut in the previous century. Garamond’s types were in turn, based on those used by Aldus Manutius in 1495 and cut by Francesco Griffo. The Monotype Garamond Italic fonts are based on types cut in France circa 1557 by Robert Granjon.
Monotype Garamond is a beautiful typeface with an air of informality that looks good in a wide range of applications. It works particularly well in books and lengthy text settings.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Monotype Garamond are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
