Designing With Fonts: 30 Useful & Free Dingbats

Design With FontsDingbats, the ornamental characters in typesetting, can be very useful objects in design as they are similar to shape or icon sets which come as fonts.

They are highly compatible as they work in every image editor & can be resized or styled easily.

Also, with the @font-face property of CSS3, where it becomes possible to use any font in webpages, it is pretty sure that dingbats will find a new usage area for themselves.
