Huruf “Serif-Old Style” Old style is not necessarily old, but has characteristics that classify it as "old" or of the classic form. Old Style is a style of font developed by Renaissance typographers to replace the Blackletter style of type. Based on ancient Roman inscriptions, these fonts are generally characterized by low contrast between thick and thin strokes, bracketed serifs, and a left-leaning axis or stress.
“Serif-Old Style” Example of “Serif-Old Style” are : Garamond Goudy Times Bembo Palatino
01. Garamond Claude Garamond Born c. 1480 in Paris, France, died 1561 in Paris, France. Type founder, publisher, punch cutter, type designer. In the 1600s by Claude Garamond, Garamond is considered one of the archetypes of old style fonts. Notice the pennant like serifs flying from the ascenders, the slight backward slant of the Os, and the lack of contrast between the thin parts and the thick parts of the letters.

02. Goudy Fred Goudy Born 8. 3. 1865 in Bloomington, USA, died 11. 5. 1947 in Malborough-on-Houdson, USA – type designer, typographer, publisher, teacher. Goudy was an active type cutter in the middle of the twentieth century. This old style font, attributed to him, was cut in the 1940s. Notice the similarities between this font and Garamond. This font has a graceful bracket (the curving line that connects the serif with the main line) on the serifs, making them appear even more pennant-like. This implementation from the 1940s shows a little thicker wide stroke that gives a little higher contrast between thick and thin strokes than the earlier Garamond.
