Serif fonts

Serifs are small strokes added to the ends of larger strokes or stems. Serif typefaces are traditionally associated with reading, and so they’re popular for books, magazines, and newspapers. But they now come in so many shapes, styles, and weights that many serif typefaces work beautifully in display settings too. If you’re looking for a specific style of serif, like slab serifs or hairline, for example, then head over to CEDARS serifs. Or take a look at other popular serif sub-categories, like Modern or Didone, Old Style, Transitional, Fat Face, or Western. You’ll also find great serif fonts in our Fonts for Books expert list.
