This is a small type specimen book I designed while at Texas Tech University. I took three typefaces (Proxima Nova, Museo Slab, & Brim) and presented them individually to show off their anatomy and how their font families work as a system. Each section of the book presents a new typeface with all of its weights, sizes, and glyphs. At the end of each section, I wrote a description for each typeface, making sure to keep the copy whimsical and light-hearted.
