Vintage black and white drop cap letter T image. Vintage styling from several different eras make this letter image an interesting find. It’s also one of the few that includes simple geometric shapes and lines to make a bold statement. I almost looks like a piece of marcasite jewelry from my grandmother’s jewelry box.
When Alfred H. Engelbach’s book was published in 1878, Engelbach did not identify an illustrator. Many of the images were probably purchased from a print foundry to be used with The King’s Warrant A Story of Old and New France.
