A typeface style with slab or square serifs, these lack contrast (i.e. in a serif face, thick serifs and stems that are normally thin are fat). Also known as ‘Western’ faces as they are reminiscent of the old American West. They are sometimes made up of human forms and floral figures, and are one of the oldest reminders of the craftsmanship of the 19th century, before the arrival of modern journalism and printing techniques. Still with us today, some of these faces are so bold and condensed that they hardly have any white space between the letters.

This is arguably the first "influential" style of design dating from 4000 to 300 B.C. Pieces were very colorful and highly decorated. Carvings featured papyrus, lotus, and human and animal forms. Seating was usually of leather or cane and loose cushions were common. The most popular woods of choice were sycamore, cedar, yew and olivewood. Royal pieces were normally further decorated with inlaid ivory, gold and jewels. Egyptian styling has also been a huge influence on craftsmen of later eras.
