Category Archives: Slab Serif
A slab serif font by Tavmjong Bah, based on the Vera fonts. Unlike traditional slab serif fonts, DejaVu has contrast between thick and thin strokes. The bowls are slightly square, and the large x-height means it remains readable at smaller sizes.
DejaVu tests well across browsers, though there are some letterspacing issues in Safari on Windows XP.
The DejaVu Serif family consists of 8 fonts (various weights and styles). All are available for free download at fontsquirrel.com.
A slab serif font by Jos Buivenga (exljbris.com). Museo Slab 500 has an x-height similar to Georgia. It also has heavier, more uniform strokes which makes letters like a and e a bit harder to read. Thus, Museo Slab works best with a generous font-size.
The Museo Slab family has 12 fonts (various styles, weights). All are available for web licensing at fontspring.com. In the font specimen sheet, I show only Museo Slab 500 and Museo Slab 500 italic, which are free fonts. I combine them with Museo 700, a bold font from a different family, but a family with a similar structure. The full family is also available via typekit.
