# Harry Potter symbols

Good evening

I have one unusual question. Are there some Harry Potter symbols in LaTeX (pictures below) ?

• The Deathly Hallows one is easy enough to make I suppose, but whether it already exists I have no idea. Sep 24, 2016 at 16:37

• See also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/244368/tikz-draw-a-cooking-pot (cauldrons), tex.stackexchange.com/questions/39149/… (code for a cat - there's a version sitting on Meta, too, I think and the colours can be configured to e.g. black or ginger for Hermione's or whatever). Doubtless more elsewhere - I'm only remembering the ones I've drawn, I expect.

• Be aware of copyright issues for the lettering. The Deathly Hallows symbol should not reach the threshold of originality, though. Sep 25, 2016 at 12:34

The second symbol is easy:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=0]
\def\a{1cm}
\draw[thick]
(0, 0) -- (60:\a) -- (\a, 0) -- cycle
(\a/2, 0) -- (60:\a)
;
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


A slight modification, some images show a smaller inner circle, e.g.:

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=0]
\def\a{1cm}
\draw[thick]
(0, 0) -- (60:\a) -- (\a, 0) -- cycle
(\a/2, 0) -- (60:\a)
;
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


The first one can also be drawn with TikZ. A grid can be put on the symbol to get the coordinates of the vertices. Easier would be to include is as image.

There's the Parry Hotter font. It's a TTF, so you'll need XeLaTeX to use it.

Of course, you could google for any other font and use that as well.

• I can open Parry Hotter on Word 2013... Are you sure it's a TTF?

• @bleh , I'm no expert on fonts or Word... but aren't you supposed to open the TTF with Windows Font Viewer ? It worked well after installation on my machine. Look in this link for more help microsoft.com/en-us/Typography/TrueTypeInstall.aspx Sep 25, 2016 at 5:21
