In the anatomy of a character,
What is the curve ( curved serif ) at the
foot/ bottom / baseline called ?
That serif is called a cupped serif. How the curve itself is called I don't know.
In german, this is called "Kehlung", which my dictionary translate as "hollow moulding (architecture)" (which might not be a good translation).
Hans Rudolf Bosshard calls it »konkave Basis« may be »concave base«.
In the same book »Technische Grundlagen zur Satzherstellung«, Kehlung ist the Position above from serife to stem.
:) Danke. Man lernt nie aus...
