A curated list of digital specimens
of the highest quality. Updated daily.
The new release from atipo is a tribute to the famous Tour de France climb. The specimen for Izoard is a stack of designed graphics which demonstrate the versatility. It'd be nice to see some web fonts in a browser, though.
SKWAR is a very square, monospaced variable font with weight and width axes. The specimen has a very nice feature of mapping the width axis to music for a nifty equaliser.
Inter has been featured here before, but the samples page is something special. A LONG list of typeset examples showing potential usage. This mapping of features of the typeface to real-world examples is really useful in evaluation.
A variable font for waveforms? Why not! The specimen is super-simple with examples and sliders for the axes.
Fort describe Figure as a quirkhorse – all the makings of a workhorse whilst still bringing some quirks from a revival. The specimen hits all the right notes: designed examples, stacked type testers, and complete glyph table with previews.
This is a bit of a outlier but I thought it would be interesting to bookmark the use of Instagram as a specimen. Of course, it lacks critical features, but as an effective way to showcase images of the type in a curated way, it's pretty good!
