Peer Review Specimen Book: Futura

For our peer review I chose a Futura specimen book created by Eliza Greenberg.  This book jumped out at me because of the color scheme (black, red, white and yellow), size of the book, and geometric design.  I love seeing the history of the font and being able to read more about it before exploring the beauty of the text.  The page dedicated to font families is crisp and clean, allowing the viewer to get a real sense of how the font looks whether it is medium or condensed extra bold.  The small accents of dotted and filled lines carry your eye from page to page.  I would have liked to see a quote or excerpt displaying the font in different sizes as well. Overall I think this specimen book is very successful.
