L with Vines and Berries

drop_lIf your name starts with the letter L or maybe you want to decorate a paragraph that starts with one, this L with vines and berries might just be the solution. It was used to decorate a book of poetry that was published in 1878. Since it is over 120 years old and not attributed to a particular artist, we know it’s in the public domain. It was most likely sold be a print foundry and used by a number of different publishing houses.

This letter L image is a bit on the smaller side but the print was fairly clean and the scan is quite nice. A dark, capital letter L is decorated with vines, leaves and berries. Add a bit of green to the leaves and maybe some red or pink to the berries and you could create a new version of this letter L image.
