    These beautiful dingbats of leaf silhouettes may not look like letters, but they could speak for the trees.

JI Nature Bats from Jeri Ingalls makes me want to run outside with a rake, just so I can jump in a pile of dry, crispy leaves. This TrueType dingbat font includes silhouettes of twenty different leaves (and one seed pod), which—-although I'm no arborist—look very realistic. Each capital letter A through T is a different icon; the other letters, numbers, and punctuation display as a default sans serif font.

If you want the full effect of the individual leaf, and all its detail, use this font no smaller than 24 point for most of the dings (some are finer and will lose their detail at even larger sizes). JI Nature Bats is free for personal use. For commercial use, contact Jeri Ingalls. For a rake to clean up the JI Nature Bats-inspired mess, I suggest a home improvement store.

Note: The "Try it for free" button on the Product Information page takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
