This Specimen book is about "Clarendon" Typeface designed by slab-serif created in the 1830s by Robert Besley. A version was made into a wood typeface and was reworked in metal by the Monotype Corporation foundry in 1935. I created this project to build curiosity for a viewer to discover about a Clarendon typeface. The book aims to know about the Designer's history, type variation, recreation for digital use, and the different types of Clarendon typeface designed by new type designers.
