    But really there are actually quite a few different ways of classifying typefaces. Serif and sans serif are the broadest categories.

    You can get more specific with calligraphic, humanist, neo-humanist, didone, etc.

    If you want more information on typeface classification I recommend The anatomy of Type by Stephen Coles.

      Thanks a lot @Vince. I was wondering, this classification based on the Type Properties is everywhere. But when the designer use the typeface for any brief for ex. Choosing a Typeface for Premium edition cosmetics like Zara. They choose something which is premium, glamorous and luxurious. Isn't it? So why we're still classify the typefaces in Serif, Sans-Serif, Slab Serif, Calligraphic and all.
