I checked a list I have from my college days and another I found on-line (http://www.type.co.uk/Books/id/9861/currency/EUR) and here's a list of these booklets (along w/ links where they exist).
Arno Pro - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/arno_spec.pdf
Brioso Pro - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/BriosoPro.pdf
Caflisch Script - http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/thumbnails/OpensWithThumbnails.pdf
Calcite Pro - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/CalcitePro.pdf
Adobe Garamond - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/AdobeGaramondPro.pdf
Garamond Premier Pro
Minion (and Minion MM and Minion Cyrillic)
Myriad - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/MyriadPro.pdf
Silentium Pro - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/SilentiumPro.pdf
Tekton - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/TektonPro.pdf
Warnock Pro - http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/pdfs/WarnockPro.pdf
Adobe Wood Type 1
Adobe Wood Type 2
Adobe Wood Type 3
Books which should exist but don't seem to include:
Bickham Script Pro
Voluta Script Pro
Given the possibilities of print-on-demand one would think Adobe would be able to make these available somehow.
Or maybe I'm the only person who collects font sample books? Some others which are pretty cool (but only available as printed books AFAIK):
- On Stone: The Art and Use of Typography on the Personal Computer by Sumner Stone (this is a lavish sample book for the eponymous ITC Stone superfamily of typefaces)
- Centaur Types by Bruce Rogers (the overages of this limited edition, rather than being pulped were donated to Rogers' Alma Mater Purdue which recently sold them)
Anyone know of any other books dedicated to single typefaces? An edge case would arguably be _Bembo's Zoo: An Animal ABC Book_ by Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich (though the website is better --- turn your speakers off if need be and visit: http://www.bemboszoo.com/ )
I suppose I should just go back to making my own (used to do this whenever I purchased a font --- not sure what happened to the files for my sample books for Agfa's Eaglefeather and Lucida --- gave all the printed books away)
