Chaparral Pro Ornaments

When searching for which ornaments to write about, I came across Chaparral Pro on www.thebookdesigner.com.  Chaparral Pro was designed for Adobe Systems by Carol Twombly in 1997, intended to be a new kind of typeface. According to www.thebookdesigner.com, Chaparral is the last in a series of incredible typefaces designed by Twombly at Adobe.

I liked the geometric shape of the ornaments, opposed to the more traditional flourishes included in other type faces. Due to the fact that the ornaments reflect the same aesthetic, I think the ornaments could be used to create borders on a printed page.
