In this paper, we propose a new network architecture for Chinese typography transformation based on deep learning. The architecture consists of two sub-networks: (1)a fully convolutional network(FCN) aiming at transferring specified typography style to another in condition of preserving structure information; (2)an adversarial network aiming at generating more realistic strokes in some details. Unlike models proposed before 2012 relying on the complex segmentation of Chinese components or
more &raquo; ... s, our model treats every Chinese character as an inseparable image, so pre-processing or post-preprocessing are abandoned. Besides, our model adopts end-to-end training without pre-trained used in other deep models. The experiments demonstrates that our model can synthesize realistic-looking target typography from any source typography both on printed style and handwriting style.
