Specimen Books with Showings

Typographic specimen books come in two general varieties: those which give a more or less complete showing of the typefaces and those which present abbreviated one-line specimens. Both have their place.

This first section covers Intertype (US, not UK) specimen books which have more-than-one-line showings.

The Book of Intertype Faces

This is a large post binder. Although it is generally paginated sequentially, there are a number of points where it was expanded to add additional material. This was the overall Interytpe specimen book in the 1930s.
