Widely recognized by editors as cleaner and much sober and elegant to look at, Serif fonts are often preferred over other typefaces. Serifs are believed to have been originated from Latin alphabet having inscriptional letterings, which were words that were carved in stones during the Roman antiquity. Outlines of Roman letters were first painted in stones, the brush strokes of which were then followed by stone carvers around the corners and stroke ends, thereby creating the Serifs. Another theory of their origin states that the Serifs were created to tidy up the line ends when they were grafted into stone.
