“Wingdings & Wingdings 2. Explained in HK Grotesk” is a type specimen that I have designed for Wingdings. This popular dingbat font family features three different fonts that contain a wide variety of symbols. The booklet uses the double page format to compare the first Wingdings version with the second one.
Although it was assured by their creators in the early 1990s that the placement of the symbols was random, the comparison between the two fonts sometimes presents several coincidences that gave rise to conspiracy theories invented by users. The specimen explains these coincidences and other curiosities with text set in HK Grotesk.
