A pair of white leaves surround a fancy letter Y in this vintage, black and white drop cap image. Use it however you would like on your next creative project.
Along with all of the wonderful illustrations that we’ve found in these vintage books, we’ve been lucky to find a great number of drop cap images. These drop caps used by printers and publishers were components of a handcrafted typeset. This fancy letter image was part of one of those sets and we are excited to share with you 22 other letters from this same drop cap letter set. Use these fancy letter images to create entire words for scrapbooking, mixed media art and other creative projects – A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, W, and Y.
This stock print foundry image and the other letter images in this set were included in the book The Proverbs of Scotland from 1868. It was published by Alexander Hislop & Company.
