The DSSerif Font Package

DSSerif is a small font package intended to provide yet another blackboard bold alphabet. The shapes, in regular and bold weights, are derived from the URW++ clones (version 2) of Courier with stem widths increased to match those of STIX Blackboard Bold (44 uits for regular, 70 for bold) and blackboard bolding done as in STIX. Serifs were shortened and heights increased to make a better match to Times and STIXTwo.

The fonts are provided in PostScript formats. As allowed by the 2017  URW++ triple license, they are released under your choice of LPPL (described in the next paragraph) and SIL's OFL, details of which are spelled out in the file OFL.txt accompanying the package.

DSSerif – A double-struck serifed font for mathematical use

DSSerif is a mathematical font package with double struck serifed digits, upper and lower case letters, in regular and bold weights. The design  was inspired by the STIX double struck fonts, which are sans serif, but starting from a Courier-like base.
