New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I don't know the right terminology for these things but in older books and texts, ornamental swashes and whatnot were sometimes used to separate blocks of paragraphs (where modern books typically use extra space) and also at the end of a column of text, e.g. at a chapter end. I attached an example of a separator and three chapter ends.
My first question is: what's the right terminology for these things?
Also, what resources could you suggest for investigating and looking at examples of them?
And any font suggestions that include them? So far I identified ITC Type Embellishments, Adobe Woodtype Ornaments and Linotype Decoration Pi.
