Rosetta type specimen no. 1 presents eight beautiful type families, each of which deserves an independent specimen. The brochure has 36 pages and covers ten writing systems. Rather than show enormous character sets and fuss about little details and features, we attempted to tell the story of why each typeface family is special. Our hope is that you find the specimen and typefaces useful for your work, and enjoy our labor of love.
