(gnu home services fontutils) module provides services for
user-specific Fontconfig setup. The
library is used by many applications to access fonts on the system.

Generally, it is better to extend this service than to directly configure it, as its default value is the default Guix Home’s profile font installation path (~/.guix-home/profile/share/fonts). If you configure this service directly, be sure to include the above directory.
A typical extension for adding an additional font directory and setting a font as the default monospace font might look like this:
(simple-service 'additional-fonts-service home-fontconfig-service-type (list "~/.nix-profile/share/fonts" '(alias (family "monospace") (prefer (family "Liberation Mono")))))
