No other typeface has to work quite as hard as a monospace designed for coding environments if you ask me. Here, the specimen for Gintronic features panels of explanatory text explaining the features baked into the font to mitigate things like fatigue for the reader.

Raptor V3

Really neat specimen for a good looking typeface. Whilst missing a few key components for effective evaluation, such as a type tester, it makes up for it by the stacked example panels outlining the features of the font.

Amiga workbench font

This takes me back. My Amiga 500 was my first serious computer experience (following on from the BBC Micro and Spectrum ZX81). It's amazing how just a font can rekindle those feelings. The specimen here is simple and adds various simulating screen effects.

Input | DJR

Input is a 'flexible system of fonts  designed for programming'. This specimen is a treat. Interesting design, useful content, supportive illustrations shown potential usage, and a really well designed license table.

Kisba Nova Text

What a beautiful serif typeface. The specimen is simple and opens with a carousel of images, but it's the type testers where Kisba Nova Text comes alive – especially the longer form paragraphs.
