Type Specimens Online

Hi,
I've been reading this forum for a while now but never written anything.
Now i need your help though.

I need to find type specimens, and preferably a lot of them.

Do you know any nice type specimen websites?

So far i've only found some websites with really old specimens. I need to find some more recent ones. Like from the 60s to now.

Thanks.

Check out the producers, the foundries.

Hi Gundi, Claus here.
Have a go on Flickr also. I've seen ATP specimen books there and other more ancient tidbits photographed page by page.

Hi Gundi, Some links of type specimens that I found (some here in typophile).

The archive.org has some intersting collection of print material with lots of type specimens for download. Check it out at
