Quirky specimen for a quirky contemporary serif. Full featured type tester before moving onto interesting sections displaying various features and contexts. The specimen ends with a long form article explaining the origins and design of the typeface.

A forumulaic specimen, but done so well. Making up for its lack of interactive elements with tasteful design.
