I was reading some Algebra notes and the letters that the author uses to start each chapter caught my attention. Does anyone know what package is needed to use those letters?

    You would find tug.org/FontCatalogue useful for questions like this.

    The ornate letters used to start chapters are called "drop caps" and one can use the package lettrine to produce them (ctan.org/pkg/lettrine?lang=en). You will need to choose a font for the drop caps or lettrine will just make a larger document-font letter.

    From the other comments: this one seems to be close tug.org/FontCatalogue/acorn

  • An example of use of this font as drop capitals, but indeed, you should take a look to the above links.
