Characters in bold headers are doubled with a slight offset

In our publications we use the "EB Garamond" font from Google Fonts. In the PDF, when the font is set to bold, all characters are doubled and the doubled character has a tiny offset to the right (see picture). This only happens in the PDF. The HTML in Firefox and Chromium looks fine.


The CSS I used in the example shown in the picture is this one:

h1 {
    font-size: 14pt;
    text-align: left;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin-top: 25pt;
    margin-bottom: 4pt;
    hyphens: none;
    break-before: left;
    string-set: chapter content();

This indicates that Prince cannot find a bold font for this family and is attempting to synthesise one. What URL are you providing to access the font?
Thanks for pushing me into the right direction. I just presumed that prince uses my locally installed font but ,without noticing, left an @import statement at some place that imported EB Garamond from a Google url without including the bold font.

Not it is working.
