Gallo's wonderful world of ornamental fonts...

Much overlooked ornament fonts come in handy in a myriad of ways. Once you have your ornamental configuration form keystroked letters (single ornaments,) you can reverse it, enlarge it, shrink it, add a background, tilt it, skew it, or simply put it in a frame. Using Adobe Illustrator's character tools for tracking, kerning and spacing, you can generate literally thousands of combinations for a unique look.

Picture Fonts
We begin our journey with Gallo's Floral ornaments font... this is one that is perfect for the fall -- or really any time of year you want to decorate with a garden motif. All are drawn with the precision of an engineer and the soul of an artist!

Picture Fonts
Next is Gallo's Elegant Rosette Ornaments. From the true Victorian and Art Nouveau periods comes this collection of high-style, high-quality printers' ornaments.

Picture Fonts
The "Rosette Ornaments" font continues Gallo's Victorian and Art Nouveau theme with unique rosettes. Each in this collection is unique and almost all are 'round' oriented.

Picture Fonts
Spanning from the Art Nouveau period to modern day, any of Gallo's unique "Spiral Ornaments" can add a decorative quirk to your pages. What we found most useful about this font was not so much as a font for typesetting -- but rather a handy collection of circular shapes which, in Adobe Illustrator, can form a starting point for other illustration work. Just convert to paths and keep drawing!

Picture Fonts
Finally, just in time for our Fall Fonts Festival, this elegant and diverse collection of leaves will come in handy! Gallo calls these his "Victorian Leaf Ornaments" but we see nothing here that ties it to the Victorian period exclusively. These are the best drawn leaves you'll find in any commercial font! Bar none!

Now, check out Gallo's Heraldic Shields, his Ornamental Creatures fonts and the ultimate Ornate Initials font.
