Most of documentclasses indeed have 10, 11 and 12pt

However document class memoir allows 9pt, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt, 14pt, 17pt


 and with option

\documentclass[14pt, extrafontsizes]{memoir}

adds 20pt, 25pt,30pt, 36pt, 48 pt and even 60pt

memoir is a great document class, very flexible, with excellent
documentation,  and its current Lars Madsen is very helpful.

I may add that I am using it for all my needs--from student tests to
articles and books--except presentations
