These specimens from Typeland follow the increasingly common design pattern of just showing stacked typetesters with varying default weights and length of sample copy. Simple design but very effective.
A font specimen page that reads exactly like a software landing page. In fact, really, the only piece of content of benefit for typographic evaluation is the illustrations of distinctive letterforms and exaggerated forms.
An unusual specimen / microsite. Overpass, sponsored by Red Hat, is inspired by Highway Gothic. The specimen is microsite where all of the useful information is in sections called 'try it'. The 'monospace' section sticks out alone in the information architecture. Still, this aside, it's a nice typeface.
