Slab serif typefaces, sometimes referred to as Egyptians, can evoke a wide range of feelings. Slabs in the Clarendon style can bring to mind the Old West, while other slabs based on neo-grotesque and geometric models can take on a more contemporary feel. Traditionally, slab serifs have been used for display text, however, some slab serifs can work well for setting body text—the Amazon Kindle uses PMN Caecilia as a default body font.
