Centaur Type Specimen
For a project in my Type Lab class, I had to choose a typeface to make a type specimen sheet about. It is an 11x17" poster that has content on the front and back and folds in half. I chose the typeface Centaur. I thought it was really interesting because it's such an old typeface. It's based off of a book written in the 1400s, so I tried to design the sheet to look like an old book on the inside and out. The specimen is used to show details of the typeface, how it can be used, and give information about it.
