modern typefaces

this diagram was helpful in solidifying my observations of the didot roman letterforms… i noticed that the serifs were thin and flat… the arms and and terminals were made of the same thin lines… the stems or otherwise the main part of the letterform was made bold… finials were a tear drop like form growing from one of the thin lines that had branched from the stem…. the typeface seemed to be “tall” and symmetrical. the modern typefaces replicate modern art characteristics… contrasting to emphasis(thick & thin)… machine made, industrial… simplifiedcat_modern1
