What is a Serif Font?

Serif typefaces contain small decorative strokes (also referred to as “feet”), which are at end of each line in the letters. Fonts of this style are often seen as classic, fancy, or professional. Many newspapers use serif typefaces, and they’re also popular in books, brochures, and fine print.

Some examples of this font type are Baskerville, Caslon, Didot, Bookman Old Style, and Times New Roman.
