Typographic Ornament

glyphsThese are some of the glyphs that come from the font Spumante, taken from Adobe Typekit. This font was created by  Laura Worthington, a type designer that takes pride in creating type based off of her own hand lettering and calligraphy.

While this is a web font, I could see these glyphs being used at the beginnings of book chapters, as page borders, or as decoration on invitations if it was ever recreated as a font for print. I was especially interested in the glyph below this text; it would work exceptionally well at the top and bottom of a formal invitation as a page border.
