I could not find the symbol of the image below which is in a book in my possession. I honestly do not remember where I saw it. Could someone help me where this symbol is located? This symbol (red rectangle) does not exist in the Comprehensive LATEX Symbol List by Scott Pakin.

    just use \includegraphics{zzz} for any picture of glasses that you find with a google image search Aug 23, 2018 at 20:00

    @DavidCarlisle wouldn't be \includegraphics{looklooklook} be more fitting? Aug 23, 2018 at 20:03

    @Sebastiano if you have a book as paper you can not tell whether it is an image or a font glyph, why do you say it is not an image? Aug 23, 2018 at 20:04
  • @DavidCarlisle I have used two tools on line What Font Is and What The Font and I have not find nothing. After I have searched on the web and I haven't find the same glasses.

    @Sebastiano why do you think it is a font character? Aug 23, 2018 at 20:13

Here is a TikZ solution.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand{\glasses}{\resizebox{3em}{!}{%
\tikz{\draw(0,0) coordinate (Origin) --++(0.2,0) coordinate (endL) arc (180:0:0.05)--++(0.2,0) coordinate (endR) --++(45:0.25) arc (180-45:0:0.08) (endR) arc (0:-180:0.1) (endL) arc (0:-180:0.1) (Origin)--++(45:0.25) arc (180-45:0:0.08);
}}}

\begin{document}
\noindent
\glasses\ \textsc{Attention}. \blindtext
\end{document}

    ducks may hide but they are still tasty. Aug 23, 2018 at 20:17
  • @DavidCarlisle How can you target them with your fork if you don't see them? Aug 23, 2018 at 20:18

    @samcarter, attack in the middle of glasses to hit the head.... lol

    NOW I know what the invisible option is good for. ;-)

The unicode character EYEGLASSES, code U+1F453

👓

seems to be what you are looking for.

    @Sebastiano If you own Font Awesome Pro, you can also use [light] or [regular] glasses. They look much better with non-bold text. Aug 23, 2018 at 20:28

where zzz.png is just a cropped version of the image you posted.

    Thank you very much, but do not get angry with me politely. I'm not as good as you are but it's really ugly an image like this. It looks like a book from the '800 :-)

    @Sebastiano yes but I cropped the image you posted, you could use a higher resolution scan of the original or as I said in the original comment use a google image search there are literally thousands of available line drawings you could use. Aug 23, 2018 at 20:19

    @Sebastiano An improved solution to David's would be to use a drawing software like Inkscape to trace the shape and convert it to a vector image. This should be rather easy with any similar software.

    @Sebastiano This is the most general answer. Just google an image and use it. Or if you want something more fancy, search for fonts that have glasses as symbol (examples here) and import that symbol probably with XeLaTeX).

  • @luchonacho I am writing a book together with a university colleague and there are many vector images. I was curious to know if there was a symbol of the glasses that I saw somewhere but I do not remember. Greetings.

    @Arsenal On the web there are many vectorial pictures of glasses. It would be interesting to know where he found a beautiful vector image with glasses.

No images, no unicode characters, not tikz, no invisible ducks :(

Macho programmers use only ASCII. :)

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\def\glasses{{\sffamily 
\leavevmode\rlap{%
\rotatebox[origin=tr]{125}{J}\kern1ex%  
\rotatebox[origin=tr]{125}{J}}% 
\rotatebox[origin=c]{-90}{D}%   
\rotatebox[origin=c]{-90}{D}}%
\def\ialy{\sffamily 
\resizebox{1ex}{1.5ex}{\reflectbox{\rotatebox[origin=]{75}{J}}}\kern-1pt%
\rlap{\tiny$\ ^\bullet\kern2.5pt^\bullet$ }%
\rotatebox[origin=c]{-90}{D}%   
\rotatebox[origin=c]{-90}{D}\kern-1pt%  
\resizebox{1ex}{1.5ex}{\rotatebox[origin=]{75}{J}}}}
\begin{document}
My pure \TeX(t) glasses \glasses\par
I am looking you \ialy

Without any packages

\documentclass{standalone}

\begin{document}

\begin{picture}(100,60)
\put(20,20){\line(1,1){20}}
\put(60,20){\line(1,1){20}}
\put(20,20){\line(1,0){17.5}}
\put(42,20){\line(1,0){17.5}}
\put(28.5,20){\oval(17.5,15)[b]}
\put(51,20){\oval(17.5,15)[b]}
\put(39.7,20){\oval(5,5)[t]}
\put(80,35.2){\oval(10,10)[rt]}
\put(40,35.2){\oval(10,10)[rt]}
