Lineto's specimens are always interesting. This one for Grey Mono gets better the more you scroll with blocks of long form content in different weights and columns

Jali Latin

What the specimen for Jali Latin lacks in character and individuality, it more than makes up in usefulness and usability. Almost everything is here to fully evaluate the typeface.

Lars

Full screen type tester. HUGE type. Unconventional UI with a few little surprises. MIssing a few details, though, to make some really informed decisions about if you want to buy it or not.

The specimen for Fontwerk's newest release, West, builds on their other specimens. Comprehensive, stylish, with just the right mix of functional and delightful.

Bretagne

Want to peruse your type to the relaxing sounds of running water and acoustic guitar? A sparce specimen which is just unconventional enough to make it interesting. Good stuff.

Agena Display

The hero image for this specimen for Agena Display by Copper and Brasses hints at what's to come after the stacks of type testers. Really effective branding and design showing off the features of the typeface.

Santa Ana Sans

From a functional perspective, this specimen for Santa Ana Sans is a little unconventional and a bit lacking. But, from a marketing perspective, it's probably one of the best I've seen. Scroll down to see brightly designed tiles of features, examples, and proposed applications.

Gnomon*

An interesting specimen for free drop shadow variable font, Gnomon. The interesting aspect of this font is the unusual variable axis: 'time of day', and 'shadow distance'. This type of interface is brilliantly educational for the potential of variable fonts.

Jost*

Jost is a tribute to Futura named after Heinrich Jost. With variable axes for weight and italics, the specimen opens with just that single type tester and a revolving carousel of example images. Nicely done.

Collletttivo

I do like a challenging interface. An interface that challenges conventions. This specimen from Production Type for Tuner does just that. An animated menu makes way for panels of content on the origin, design, and a specimen of features.

Irregardless ☠️

Oh no's specimens have been featured here before, but I had to include irregardless for its wonderful design. Checkout the 'containers' weight for some fun backgrounds to overlay text onto.
