Antiqua is a common name for different groups of serif fonts. The first antiquas appeared a very long time ago, in the Renaissance, which is reflected in the name: translated from Latin, anticuus means "ancient".
With serifs, typographers of the past produced better prints by minimizing the wear and tear of the letters themselves. Today, serif fonts are actively used in print, they are especially popular as book or magazine fonts.
In addition to serifs, high contrast is typical for antiquas. Antiquas are a broad group of fonts that fall into different categories. Based on the scope of application, there is a distinction between text and heading antiquas.
The most common is the classification of antiquas by the historical period.
There are old style, transitional, new style, and slab serifs.
Old-style serif is the name given to the first fonts that became widespread in the 15th-17th centuries and possessed features of handwritten letters. The main features of the old-style serifs are such elements as slanted ovals of the letters and asymmetrical serifs.
An interesting example of a typeface from the TypeType collection is TT Bells, which has the features of old-style fonts, but was designed using modern geometric solutions.
Transitional serif differs from the previous one in high contrast letters and symmetrical serifs. This type of font looks strict and neat, so it is often used for official documents and books.

New style serifs appeared at the end of the 18th century. This category includes fonts that have monospace proportions and strong contrast. Among the main uses is the printing of books, brochures and magazines.
The last subcategory of serifs is slab. The period of their proliferation in typography falls at the beginning of the 19th century. Such fonts are characterized by powerful rectangular serifs and low contrast. Slab fonts are ideal as headline fonts for advertising and posters.
Among TypeType's work, the TT Rationalist typeface is a great example of a slab font, perfect for titles in books, magazines, and other printed materials.
