The type families created by Tobias Frere-Jones are extensive and complex, designed to anticipate a very wide range of uses. Mallory is a 26-style family containing two optical sizes and eight-weights. Retina is a 72-style family containing two optical sizes, seven weights, and three widths.

Comprehensive specimens are produced for each release. They illustrate the shape of the family, provide detailed showings of each style, offer text settings for evaluation, and contain technical documentation.

These specimens were crafted with an eye toward historical type specimens, and the system of templates that underpins the design is intentionally flexible to anticipate everything from Retina-sized projects to small, one- or two-style families.
