A slab serif (also called mechanistic, square serif, antique or Egyptian) typeface is a type of fat slab serif typeface characterised by thick, block-like serifs. Serif terminals may be either blunt and angular, or rounded. Slab serifs were invented in and most popular during the nineteenth century. Display-oriented slab serifs are often extremely bold, intended to grab the reader's attention on a poster, while slab serifs oriented towards legibility at small sizes show less extreme characteristics. Slab serif typefaces appeared rapidly in the early nineteenth century, having little in common with previous typefaces. As the printing of advertising material began to expand in the early nineteenth century, new and notionally more attention-grabbing typefaces were needed. Poster-size types began to be developed that were not merely magnified forms of book type, but very different and bolder.
