The Daily Drop Cap

H oly Typography, Batman!! Via HipHostess, I found this amazing new typography site today called Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische. This typographer/illustrator started this blog as an ongoing project. Each day she posts a new hand-crafted decorative initial cap for free use on the net (& I quote) "for the beautification of blog posts everywhere." You just copy & paste the code she provides into the HTML (like I did!) and VIOLA! Her characters are so much fun. Other than the "H" I used today she has many other letters to use in your beautifying:


(Her latest post, an N)

(This dainty Y)

(And this awesome B...can't resist this letter these days. Hee, hee)

Love her use of color. Some letters are bold, some are soft. Plenty of inspiration whether you are a fan of type or not. Check out her other amazing work here. She's got some great fonts on my favorite type site, MyFonts.com

Bravo, Jessica! Your work is beautiful. Keep it up!
