Typotheque Font Specimen Books

I've spent this week in the Lettering Department of Hallmark where there has been much talk about the finer details of typography. We've been showing each other favorite fonts and talking about type designers in hallowed tones -- many mentions of Oz Cooper and Bringhurst's Tome.

One of the foundries that got a lot of time was Typotheque and their amazing Font Specimen booklets for their large font families Brioni, History and Greta. I've collected a few choice pages into a set on Flickr to see the level of detail and thought involved in each of these families.
