Free Line Art design elements
I just discovered this website with lots of free, high quality line art.
I find putting in a little decoration with chapter headings give a book some sort of identity.
I'm curious if other folks have found sources for things like this. I'm most interested in decorative lines. And free.
BTW, I'm not associated at all with the website above, I only mention it because they have free stuff.

Oh, these are absolutely fantastic. My students often need images like this for their ebook projects - and some are tempted to use the first thing that pops up in a Google image search result. Thanks for sharing the link!

On a side related note, you could turn them into vector graphics and then into fonts.

I've used some from Briarpress. I've also made use of characters in pi/dingbat fonts that are available from a number of sites like:
and bitmap images from:
Also, there are a number of old type foundry specimen books at the Internet Archive like this one: http://www.archive.org/details/booko...ecim00barnrich You have to use a bitmap image in the ebook when you use these but a simple screen capture, paste into Photoshop, and crop and make adjustments yields very usable ornaments.
I generally place small bitmaps, typically 4 color GIFs if B&W or 8 color if colorized, in my ebooks rather than deal with format specific vector images or embedding a custom font.
