Typographic Ornament: Zapfino

For the 10th and final blog post for Typography, I chose typographic ornaments from the font Zapfino.  This font was designed for Linotype in 1998 by Hermann Zapf.  Zapfino has an organic quality with a fluid calligraphic script font that comes with dozens of typographic ornaments and characters for combining and customization.  All the ornaments have the style of pen-drawn illustrations, which is similar to the writing style of calligraphy masters. I can see these ornaments being used on printed materials such as business cards, brochures, or personalized papers for accents and page decoration.
