Indices : Terminology : Semi-serif

A post-modernist category of typeface that mixes elements of both the Serif and sans serif forms.

Other sans-serif/serif hybrids besides Dead History?
The Best Term for a Typeface That Combines Elements of Both Serif and Sans Serif?

<–! Note: I’m not sure this is the right term, as there are straight text fonts with “Semiserif” in the name. “Hybrid” something or “Mashup” might be a more appropriate wiki page for this type of font. - S. Coles

Note: Stephen, i’m not sure how the term “semi-serif” is used in reference to these other types of fonts. Can you point me toward some samples, so that I can expand this article to include both usages? –>
