An amazing experimental variable font, the specimen for Handset tries to articulate the huge range of options available to the user. The discretionary ligatures are such a delight.
The notable point about this specimen is the conversational tone it takes in explaining the features of the font – particularly the Very Discretionary Ligatures. Nicely presented illustrations give a 50's vibe.
An impressively detailed, long-form specimen for Dunbar. Starting with stacked typographic illustrations, it moves onto typesetters for each individual weight. The detailed overview of Opentype features is a welcome addition, as are the in-depth design notes.
