silka mono

An interesting specimen, but if only this was in web fonts! Stacked images of various incontext settings are really what sells the typeface here. Alternating black and white, large and small text across the various weights have striking appearance.

All Newlyn's specimens follow the same, templated (but slick) design. Simple cues, such as the flashing cursor, invite users to interact with the specimen further.
