    use the titlesec package – Frank Mittelbach Sep 21 '13 at 17:42

The simplest approach is to use the »quotchap« package. It defines exactly this chapter style. But that is not the main purpose of this package.

\documentclass[11pt]{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[newcentury]{quotchap}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
  \blinddocument
\end{document}

Addendum:

As mentioned in a comment, you an also use »titlesec« to get that chapter style.

\documentclass[11pt]{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\newcommand{\chapnumfont}{%     % define font for chapter number
  \usefont{T1}{pnc}{b}{n}%      % choose New Chancery, bold, normal shape
  \fontsize{100}{100}%          % font size 100pt, baselineskip 100pt
  \selectfont%                  % activate font
}
\colorlet{chapnumcol}{gray!75}  % color for chapter number

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
{\filleft\bfseries}
{\filleft\chapnumfont\textcolor{chapnumcol}{\thechapter}}
{-24pt}
{\Huge}

\begin{document}
  \blinddocument
\end{document}

  • @ThorstenDoing Let's say I want to add the word Chapter to the title in the quotechap answer (e.g., ibb.co/fFHWna). How can I do that? – pushpen.paul May 30 '17 at 15:36
