There are a number of type classification systems. The Vox-ATypI system is the current recognized system. The system was devised by Maximilien Vox in 19654. The system was adopted in 1962 by the Association Typographique Internationale. It was also adopted by the British Standards Classification of Typefaces in 1967. The system looks at the main characteristics of a typeface focusing in on aspects like serifs, stroke axis, x-height, and stroke weight differences. There are other classification systems and some websites make up their own classification systems. Click on the category name in order to view more about the particular category.
