Typo Feature - Initials

Sun Dec 11, 2011, 6:53 AM
Bi-Monthly article featuring Typographic Artworks by theme.
You can suggest a theme for the next featured article by commenting on this article :)

Today's Typo Feature is dedicated to Initials.

What is an Initial?
It stands at the beginning of a copytext, a chapter or a
paragraph. It is considerably bigger than the rest of the copy, usually
several lines high. It can be a simple letter or an decorated character.

Aww wowzers, I am so out of the loop, I am just discovering you featured my art here. Thanks so much ^pica-ae. It's been a long time since I worked on initials, but I have been thinking I should, and would like to again. Thanks for the feature again, and thanks for the inspiration. :hug:
