Open-source typefaces

Chris Dean's picture

Please help compile a list of open-source typefaces.

I just came across this on twitter:

Open Baskerville

Feel free to contribute. See what I did there? “feel free.” Ah? Yes?

Sorts Mill Kis otf Regular has 7,490 kerning pairs; Italic, 14,147!
Sorts Mill Kis ttf fonts have no kerning pairs.

And I thought I was bad at spacing ;-)

Look at that "rt". :-/

If you put monkeys on a font editor long enough you will end up with a properly spaced font. Clearly in this case the monkeys were simply not given enough time.

Using Jakob as an example:

"The fonts (without source code) are also on abstractfonts.com from: http://www.abstractfonts.com/font/15019"

Jakob: "ChangeLog 17.12.2010 Version 1.8 added [T|t]horn, Section, ... Kernig [sic] and width adjusted!"
I found no NO kerning.

I found NO otf fonts, and T1 fonts have only afm and pfb files but no pfm files.

Renaissance Man's picture

Fabrik otf has 569 kerning pairs (all styles). All styles of Fabrik ttf have no kerning pairs. T1 has no pfm files.

PabloImpallari's picture

Instead of complaining, why not contributing?

Té Rowan's picture

1. One risks discrepancies when working off-line with other folks' data, especially when one should be sleeping.

2. FontForge defaults to Unix conventions for T1 fonts: AFM/PFA or AFM/PFB. AFM-to-PFM conversion utilities exist.

@Pablo – As much as it sounds like kvetching, much of it was information I needed. I found I was two subversions behind on Fabrik, for fanen!

Edit 1:

The Fabrik TTFs I have (from a fresh download) have 570–571 kerning pairs, according to my .fea (OpenType feature file) dumps. Their instructing, however, is very limited.

> AFM-to-PFM conversion utilities exist

Yes, but they either require considerable human intervention, or they produce pretty lousy results. The AFM does not contain various Windows-specific info that goes into a PFM, such as menu names and style linking.

Té Rowan's picture

*shrugs* Way beyond my expertise. I'm still scratching the surface of what FontForge can be scripted to do.

HVB's picture

re: PFB+AFM
Fonts distributed that way used to include an .INF file containing the menu names and style linking. Such distributions could be converted to PFM+PFB with the now absent Adobe Type Manager (ATM).

I know of no utility or simple method under current operating systems for the average consumer to do this? (I.e., someone without FontLab and technical knowledge of how to copy the .inf info into the font manually.

Hmm. I seem to remember a similar conversation with Tom 3-4 years ago in the Adobe typography forum … which is now effectively defunct.

Which was my point exactly. No pfm files = no T1.

Té Rowan's picture

Funny thing about PFMs... all they are good for on a Unix system is to gen an AFM file.

So does opensource mean it can be used for anything? Commerical purposes, etc?

> So does opensource mean it can be used for anything? Commerical purposes, etc?
Yep

gargoyle's picture

There's a utility called AfmToPfm which purports to create PFM files from AFM and INF files.

@Té: I can’t help but think what all your work would look like in a high-ceiling gallery printed out on a reeeally looong piece of old dot-matrix printer paper. Heck, have it printing while the gallery and it’s now a performance. Throw in a bit about your troubled childhood, feminist theory, public versus private space, being comfortable in your own skin, and use the phrase “in and of itself” a lot and you’ve got an MFA thesis. Possibly a Canada Council grant too.

You have single-handedly contributed far more to this thread then I thought possible from the entire community. Please keep it up. I am actively following (is that an oxy-moron?).

(you could also do it on the green striped paper and talk about the environment and sustainability. Tape the end of the long piece of printer paper to the beginning to form a giant loop and now you can talk about infinity &c.)

Té Rowan's picture

Oh, heck, no! I'm not cataloguing that! :-)

@Chris – Were I not long since out of fanfold and both the Microline 80 and the QL not dead as a doornail, I might think of composing a bit of performance art.

altsan's picture

This is a slight divergence but still I think on-topic (and since I can't start new threads this is the best I can do)...

I've recently downloaded and am trying to classify the GhostPCL fonts which URW++ donated to Artifex software under the free Aladdin license. They don't seem to be as widely known or disseminated as the 35 "core GhostScript" fonts similar donated by URW++, but they provide open source implementations of some very nice faces. Mostly they seem designed to fill in some of the gaps in the PostScript v3 core set when taken together with the GhostScript fonts.

However, I'm having trouble clearly identifying one or two... and I'm not entirely clear on the distinction between some of them.

The name in "quotes" is the family name stored in the font file.

  • "A028" (this looks a lot like Albertus but I think it's slightly different... does anyone know for sure?)
  • "A030" and "NimbusSanL" both appear to be Helvetica clones, which seems oddly redundant. Is there a distinction that I'm missing?
  • "AntiqueOlive" (Antique Olive, obviously)
  • "ArtLinePrinter" (actually, this seems to be an original Aladdin Software creation, not URW's work at all)
  • "CenturySchL" (Century Schoolbook implementation)
  • "ClarendonURW" (Clarendon, only Bold Condensed weight included)
  • "Coronet" (Coronet)
  • "Dingbats" (Wingdings clone)
  • "GaramondNo8" (this is a rather nice Garamond, but I'm not sure if it's an original URW interpretation or not. At least, I can't perfectly match it up to one of the well-known Garamond designs that I've looked at.)
  • "LetterGothic" (Letter Gothic)
  • "Mauritius" (Mauritius)
  • "NimbusMonL" and "NimbusMono" are both included (both Courier clones). Again, what's the distinction?
  • "NimbusRomanNo4", "NimbusRomanNo9", and "NimbusRomNo9L" (three apparent Times New Roman clones. In fact, there are subtle differences between the three, but does anyone know what the justification for each one is?)
  • "NimbusSanLCond" (clone Helvetica Condensed or Helvetica Narrow... not totally certain which)
  • "StandardSymL" (Symbol)
  • "U001" (seems to be a Univers clone)
  • "U001Con" (similarly, a Univers Condensed clone)
  • "URWBookmanL" (Bookman)
  • "URWChanceryL" (Zapf Chancery)
  • "URWClassico" (Optima)
  • "URWGothicL" (Avant Garde Gothic)
  • "URWPalladioL" (Palatino)
altsan's picture

"NimbusRomanNo4", "NimbusRomanNo9", and "NimbusRomNo9L" (three apparent Times New Roman clones. In fact, there are subtle differences between the three, but does anyone know what the justification for each one is?)

Sorry to reply to myself, but on further inspection, I should amend this. All three Nimbus Roman types appear to be based on Linotype Times Roman. Some interesting differences between the three, however:

  • No9 L is almost imperceptibly lighter than the other two but in different ways: No9 seems to have fractionally darker vertical strokes, whereas No4 has fractionally darker horizontals.
  • No9 has italicized Greek characters, whereas both No9L and No4 have regular ones. (No9L also supports only those Greek characters appearing in the Latin-1 charset, whereas the other two have more.)
  • I believe No4 has a very (very) slightly lower caps height than the other two.

      As far as "A030" and "Nimbus Sans L", the latter supports Cyrillic while the former does not. They otherwise seem largely identical, although I haven't done a rigorous inspection.

      I apologize if all this seems pedantic but I haven't been able to find much other information on the lineage of these various faces (esp. Nimbus Roman). Wikipedia isn't very informative, and Google mostly seems to have download links rather than background.

@altsan: Why can’t you start a new thread? Are you following the proper steps? There appears to be nothing wrong with your account…

Send me an email and we can start a screenshare so I can watch what is happening in real time.

Té Rowan's picture

I was planning to (try to) sort out the Ghostscript fonts once the local general store brought in some round tuits...

A028 looks like the images I have seen of Albertus, but the 'M' is deeper.

A030... Nimbus Mono with some Arial slathered on?

The closest match I have ever found to Garamond No8 is Bitstream's "Original Garamond BT", and both look similar to Stempel Garamond.

@Chris Well I'll be mogadored, I tried yet again and it worked this time! Maybe you managed to get TPTB to do the magic incantation; if so, thanks! I sure didn't do anything differently this time around...

I'll see if it keeps working, anyway. :)

Thank you again.

- Regular, Italic and Bold styles

- Initial v1.0 release

I found ZERO kerning pairs.

PabloImpallari's picture

Renaissance Man:
We have used GPOS based kerning, instead of the old Kerning table.
So the 'kern' table is no longer present.
All the kerning pairs are contained only into the 'kern' OT feature.
This method is better for web-fonts since you get a smaller file size, and the font will load faster on the web.

I've updated the description now, to make it clear and avoid confusions.

Michel Boyer's picture

You can easily list the GPOS/GSUB features contained in a font with the line command otfinfo -f (otfinfo comes with MacTeX and, I presume, with texlive for the PC); here are just three options for otfinfo (there are many more):

Usage: otfinfo [-sfzpg | OPTIONS] [OTFFILES...]
Query options:
  -s, --scripts                Report font’s supported scripts.
  -f, --features               Report font’s GSUB/GPOS features.
  -z, --optical-size           Report font’s optical size information.

and here is the relevant trace:

517 % otfinfo -f LibreBaskerville-Regular.ttf
dlig	Discretionary Ligatures
frac	Fractions
kern	Kerning
liga	Standard Ligatures
ordn	Ordinals
sinf	Scientific Inferiors

@Pablo – A few files in the archive (*.txt and the Italic sources) had the mode 755 instead of 644. Maybe OS-X has some strange uses for the exe-bits I know nothing of...

Anyway, seems it's testing time. (Chibi-Rowan rubs 's tiny little chibi-hands together in glee, a manic grin on 's chibified face...)

Congrats on compiling all the info.

Your key refers to MUFI but doesn't tell what MUFI is, and defines UNZ1 in terms of MUFI.... Maybe offering links for these two items would be a good idea?

Reckon it's true. I may have intended to do so, but short-term memory tends to be just that.

For some weird reason though that seems to happen almost exclusively with free fonts...

I usually find myself wanting to add a "few" characters that I'd really, really like to use but are not provided. (I make use of unusual punctuation marks, and fractions, and long S, and computing/astronomy symbols, and smiles/dingbats/emoji, etc.) I've had occasions when I had to change my plans because a font didn't have the repertoire I needed.

My only two released fonts are under Open Font License. I've contributed a few glyphs to EB Garamond, another open source typeface.

More handy than a list of Open Source fonts would be a list of professionally designed open source fonts.

Off of the top of my head, included on that list would be:

  • Bitstream Vera
  • Bitstream Charter
  • The URW++ fonts
  • Utopia
  • Adobe Source Pro

You mean OS fonts made by folks that make their living off making fonts, right? You'll then want to add Paratype's PT Sans/Serif and the Ubuntu sans-serif (commissioned from Dalton-Maag).

Dan Gayle's picture

You're correct, those do belong on the list as well, although the Ubuntu font is really their Aller font, right?

Té Rowan's picture

Dunno... They look rather different to me. For whatever reason I think of Aller as a print face, while Ubuntu is definitely a screen face.

Aller and Ubuntu are different type families, and most importantly, have different licenses. As I read it, the free version of Aller is limited to 25 users, where 25 visitors to a website counts as "25 users."

Regarding Aller as a webfont, Dalton Maag considers 1 desktop user to be the equivalent of 1,000 unique website visitors per day, with some wiggle room for traffic spikes.
http://www.daltonmaag.com/about/web_embedding_faq.html

But, more to the point of this thread, Aller is not an open source font; it's covered by Dalton Maag's standard EULA (supplemented with the Aller Free License), which does not allow modification. The Ubuntu font is covered by its own open source license which is based on the SIL OFL.

charles ellertson's picture

Guess that's right, though confusing to me. From http://www.fontsquirrel.com/license/Aller (Emphasis added)

1 You, the Licensee, are granted the right by Dalton Maag to Use the Aller Font Family, Standard Edition under the terms set out in the EULA. This free licence has a Licensed Unit size of 25 Users.

2 Use by more than 25 Users, or equivalent Website Visitors, is a breach of this Free Licence Agreement, and instead requires a commercial licence.

Fontsquirrel Note: 1000 website visitors is the equivalent of 1 user - http://www.daltonmaag.com/about/web_embedding_faq.html

Full update to the AIM list... two faces dropped, one new and all but the Verajja faces updated.
