Here you can download a large collection of 31 scroll line frames. They are very easy to draw, especially in 2D CAD or vector software.

We called them scroll line frames because this type of frames and borders is commonly referred to by the same name in books from the early 20th century. They were very popular during the Art Nouveau movement, so we could also call them Art Nouveau frames, which they actually are.

On simple scroll line frames, the frame is just slightly adorned in the corners with some decorative shape made of scroll line. Frame lines can be further embellished with bold lines, small curves, or serpentines. On complex scroll line frames, the scroll line undulates and changes thickness, various complex decorative elements (usually formed from the scroll line) are used for decoration, which can be placed not only in the corners but also used to interrupt lines in various places. You will be able to see all these examples when you become familiar with this collection of scroll line frames because you can see both simple and very complex examples among them.

Depending on whether the frames have symmetry axes, the frames in the collection are offered as whole-, half-, and quarter frames. The whole frame is obtained by mirroring the symmetry axis. Frames of any size can be obtained with these scroll line frames, it is enough to cut the border at certain places, move the parts obtained by cutting and reconnect them by drawing the scroll line between the cut pieces. By cutting out various frame segments from our collection, you can get a large number of design elements that can be used to create your own custom scroll line frames.

This entire collection of scroll line frames has resulted from searching through old books and magazines. Most of them come from magazine advertisements, and several were used on title pages as borders within which the book information was printed. Of course you can also use these frames for show cards, business cards, display signs, borders on glass shop fronts, etc.
