InDesigning Epubs: Fonts

A few things about fonts and epubs

  • Different ebook readers have different native fonts available.
  • A reader can change the size and font of the text in an ebook.
  • You can choose to embed fonts when you export as epub in InDesign
  • To call out a font in CSS style manually
    p.class {font-family: “fontname”;}
  • To embed a font manually, place the OTF (preferred) file in ‘fonts’ folder within the ‘OEBPS’ folder
    @font-face{font-family:’fontname’; src:url(‘fonts/fontname.otf;)’
