Glossary of Design Terms
- A family of typefaces distinguished by heavy slab serifs and little contrast between the thick and thin strokes. Slab serif and square serif are the more common terms for such typefaces.
- A process for producing raised designs on paper or similar substrates. This is done through a stamping process where paper is pressed between a metal female die and male counter-die, resulting in the paper being formed into a specified shape. Lettering, artwork or a pattern on a cover can be embossed to create a richer and more dimensional design.
