# Free ornaments font

I'm looking for a free ornaments font. I know about webomint and pifont. Where can I find more glyphs?

You can't miss adforn font. Use \usepackage{adforn} to access the glyphs. See manual of the package for the commands.

There are still other fonts including ornaments (not in The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List), for example, linux-libertine(linbertine package).

fourier offers ornamental glyphs, specifically fourier-orns. A short example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fourier-orns}
\begin{document}
\Huge
\textxswup\textxswdown
\decoone\decotwo
\decothreeleft\decothreeright
\decofourleft\decofourright
\floweroneleft\floweroneright
\end{document}


There are more, have a look at the fourier-orns example pdf file.

umrandb and umranda are not listed here:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fonttable}
\begin{document}
\section{umranda}
\fonttable{umranda}
\subsection{Usage}
\verb|\font\umranda=umranda \umranda  \char35 --- | \font\umranda=umranda
\umranda  \char35
%
\newpage
\section{umrandb}
\fonttable{umrandb}
\subsection{Usage}
\verb|\font\umrandb=umrandb \umrandb  \char114 --- | \font\umrandb=umrandb
\umrandb  \char114
\end{document}

If you are using XeTeX or LuaTeX, you can use anything from Font Squirrel's dingbat list, which lists some nice ones.

There is also pgfornament. This is not a font - any more than pst-vectorian is a font. Rather, it consists of code for drawing ornaments using PGF.

While not on CTAN, it is readily available and, I think, quite popular because, unlike its pst- predecessor, it can be straightforwardly used with pdfTeX. It is available as pgfornament.zip.

A sampler:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pgfornament}

\begin{document}
\tikzset{
pgfornamentstyle/.style={scale=.25}
}
\foreach \i in {1,...,89} {\expandafter\pgfornament\expandafter{\i}\ }
\end{document}

I think that pst-vectorian really needs a shout-out here. It's got some stunning ornaments.

The DRM font also has some interesting ornamental possibilities. (Disclaimer: I'm the author of DRM, and my opinion of it is correspondingly biased.)

Both have demonstrative documentation.
