cm – Computer Modern fonts

Knuth's fi­nal it­er­a­tion of his re-in­ter­pre­ta­tion of a c.19 Modern-style font from Mono­type. The fam­ily is com­pre­hen­sive, of­fer­ing both sans and ro­man styles, and a monospaced font, to­gether with math­e­mat­ics fonts closely in­te­grated with the math­e­mat­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties of it­self.

The base fonts are dis­tributed as source, but au­to­traced PostScript Type 1 ver­sions are avail­able (one ver­sion in the AMS fonts dis­tri­bu­tion, and also the BaKoMa dis­tri­bu­tion).

The Com­puter Modern fonts have in­spired many later fam­i­lies, no­tably the Euro­pean Com­puter Modern and the Latin Modern fam­i­lies.
