Are there any typefaces that have 45 degree diagonal serifs like Zuzana Licko's [[http://www.emigre.com/EFfeature.php?di=105|Matrix]]? I'd like to see the effect of this kind of serif on legibility before I start realising an idea which I want to excecute.

In case it helps your research, this type of serif is called "Latin"
(although often this includes serifs that don't have totally sharp
ends, like Azuza*). BTW, a good example is Saracen: http://www.typography.com/catalog/saracen/index.html

* See the description here:

Latin serif fonts were big in France in
the second half of the 19th century.

Wiewauters, you obviously didn't travel by air prior to 1978 ;-)
