Type Specimen Books 001

Neben Pro Specimen

Rather than creating a printed specimen book to show case the capabilities of Neben Pro we wanted to something different. This specimen has is 100% laser cut to emphasis the design features of the letterforms. Encased in a snug black box with a tear seal, the sample is made up of a select number of characters that have been laser cut into black card. All of these are held together by 2 sheets of 3mm laser etched perspex. The top sheet is the grid that was used to construct the typeface & the bottom sheet with a “quick brown fox” quote revealing 26 of the 233 glyphs in the typeface.

I really love the concept behind this book, while fairly obvious i think it works really well. It suits the style of the typface, down to the way it was designed, mathematicly and precise. I love the way the book was bound and displayed. Very neat and stylish, something i would love to recreate.
