Font catalog

A specimen of roman typefaces by William Caslon

A font catalog or font catalogue is a collection of specimen of typefaces offering sample use of the fonts for the included typefaces, originally in the form of a printed book.[1] The definition has also been applied to websites[2] offering a specimens collection similar to what a printed catalog provides.

The purpose of a font catalog is to aid a typesetter or graphical designer to choose an appropriate typeface, or narrow down candidates for the typesetting or design process.
