Antique Legacy

A simple and efficient specimen for Antique Legacy from Optimo. Notable are the stacked type testers with different lengths of copy, but also the ability to change the sample text to a number of defaults.

An efficient specimen for Ellograph from Connary Fagen. Opening with an unusual type tester followed by some fabulous example usage designs. Shown full screen, these really do show off the font's features well. The glyph table below is a little small in comparison, however, and could use a large scale preview.

Monument Mono

Dínamos specimens continue to surprise and delight and this one for Monument Mono is no exception. Playful, oversized user interface elements coupled with some introductory photography. Don't be fooled, though, this is a seriously usable specimen with stacked type testers and lots of detailed information.
