Textboxes are rectangles which can contains text and other stuffs. I was wondering if there is some package that allows to create textboxes with arbitrary shapes.

I mean, can I obtain something like this?

Hope tags are correct.


The first package I can think of is, obviously, shapepar. You might also want to have a look to the wrapfig package.


However, what you request could also be obtained, without loading any package, by means of TeX primitive commands: try saying

\hangindent = -.5\linewidth % for instance
\hangafter  = 7 % say

at the beginning of a paragraph, and see what happens. Then try playing around with the values .5 and 7 (the latter must be an integer).
