Glossary of Printing Terms:
Roman Face

The term used for fonts whose letters have small end-strokes (serifs) at the ends.

The basic form of Roman face stems directly from the antique Capitalis style of the Romans.

The upper-case letters are borrowed from the Roman script, while the lower-case letters come from the Caroline minuscule. Varying weights are another common feature of Roman faces.

They are especially easy to read in running texts, and include Times, Bodoni and Garamond.
