Source Han Serif

Source Han Serif is a set of OpenType/CFF Pan-CJK fonts. In addition to functional OpenType fonts, this open source project provides all of the source files that were used to build these OpenType fonts by using the AFDKO makeotf and otf2otc tools.

Download the fonts (OTF, OTC, Super OTC, Subset OTF)

Individual font resources or ZIP files for various deployment configurations are available for download:

To help decide which fonts to download, please refer to the Configurations section of the official font readme file. Those who are unfamiliar with GitHub are encouraged to reference the official Source Han download guide, which is provided in English, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

You can also download entire releases that include all available configurations in a single ZIP file. The ZIP file for the latest release is approximately 2GB.

Font installation instructions

Building the fonts from source

Requirements

To build the binary font files from source, you need to have installed the Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO). The AFDKO tools are widely used for font development today, and are part of most font editor applications.

Build all fonts

In this repository, all necessary files are in place for building the OpenType/CFF and OpenType/CFF Collection fonts. The COMMANDS.txt file provides the command lines that are used to build the OTFs and OTCs.

Getting Involved

Send suggestions for changes to the Source Han Serif project maintainer, Dr. Ken Lunde, for consideration.
