Fabulous Flourishes
« on: June 06, 2014, 09:32:44 AM »
I thought it would be nice to start a thread of particularly fabulous flourishes, especially those that are not birds!  This one is from the thegraphicsfairy.com and is said to be in the public domain.  Supposed to be from a "1807 Italian Typography print".  Love the those little fishy smiles!

My niece loves horses, so here is a great piece by Barlow and Imes for the Penman's Art Journal.

It is a part of http://www.scranton.edu/academics/ignite/issues/2011/fall/special-collections.shtml the Special Collections department of the Weinberg Memorial Library of the University of Scranton.
