A serif is a small stroke at the end of the letter bar. Two of the most popular serif or Roman typefaces are Times New Roman and Century Schoolbook. Serifs can take different forms. These can include: Curved serifs, such as in Garamond, which is an example of a French Renaissance Antiqua; or fine strokes such as in the case of Bodoni, an example of a classic Roman. We will soon have a feature on slab serifs equipped with strong geometric serifs. You’ll find a selection of typefaces including slab serifs equipped with bold, geometric serifs here.
