(typography) An alphabet of any size designed for reproduction, including different weights (e.g. bold), but excluding variations such as italic. Typefaces can be broadly classified by appearance into Roman, Blackletter (or Gothic), and Celtic types. Those most commonly used today are Roman types, which have four subcategories: serif, sans-serif, cursive, and ornamental (compare font family). See also typography.
