This is a great specimen from Type Republic. Traditionally designed, but with each paragraph or single sentence changing into a type tester when the user clicks on it. It's a detailed, considered digital specimen.

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.
