Brief summary of characteristics:
Transition to serifs is diminished, crossbar "e" horizontal, line weights very distinct, axis slightly to the left.
Group 3: Transitional:
Transitional, or Baroque Antiqua, does not have consistent distinguishing marks. However, in all of these fonts there's a strong contrast between the stem stroke and the link. The axis is only slightly oblique or horizontal. Beaks are partly oblique, partly horizontal.
Serifs are just slightly gorged and more subtle than those of Old-Style Antiqua or Garalde. Majuscules and the ascenders of minuscules are the same height.
The italic type style usually has the same character spacing as the corresponding upright type styles.
