n typography, a serif /ˈsɛrɪf/ is a small line attached to the end of a stroke in a letter or symbol, such as when handwriting is separated into distinct units for a typewriter or typsetter. A typeface with serifs is called a serif typeface (or serifed typeface). A typeface without serifs is called sans serif or sans-serif, from the French sans, meaning “without”. Some typography sources refer to sans-serif typefaces as "Grotesque" (in German "grotesk") or "Gothic", and serif typefaces as "Roman".
Project Face Type is a online typographic project. Using Adobe Muse & Typekit we plan to showcase our favourite serif and sans serif fonts from their collection. Over the coming weeks we will add pages to the site - expanding the collection.
