A typeface style with slab or square serifs, these lack contrast (i.e., in a serif face, thick serifs and stems that are normally thin are fat). Also known as Western faces since they are reminiscent of the old American West, these are sometimes made up of human forms and floral figures, and are one of the oldest reminders of the craftsmanship of the 19th century?before modern journalism and printing techniques came into being. Still with us today, some of these faces are so bold and condensed that they hardly have any white space between the letters.
