On this page you can download a collection of 15 typefounding ornaments.

The typefounding industry no longer exists as the printing of books considerably changed with the appearance of computers. However, a large collection of specimen catalogues that this industry offered to printers were left behind as a legacy. The catalogues contain different typefaces, ornaments, illustrations, etc. which all can be very useful when you need simple decorations or design elements.

In addition to 2D CAD (.dwg) file formats, vector (.eps and .svg) file formats exported from 2D CAD software is also available for download.

n order to achieve a satisfactory quality of geometry, for drawing these typefounding ornaments we used 2D CAD software. The resulting 2D CAD profiles are then transformed into vector illustrations.
