example of Serif - R. Folsom


19th -c. word for a small stroke to finish off the stroke of a letter. Seems to have first appeared in carved Greek letters c. 4th c. BC. Among the many kinds are: beak, bracketed, unbracketed, clubbed, cupped, hairline, hook, rolled, slab, tick and wedge. (rose folsom)

As a lover of calligraphy, I had to include an apropos word in my first week of blogging! This word is dedicated to my former teacher in Portland OR., Carol DuBosch. She is an outstanding teacher of all things Calligraphic and beyond. Thank you, Carol, for all the letters!
