Check out this nice vintage P image. It’s from an 1889 map of East Portland. The engraving is filled with horizontal lines to provide color and shading to an otherwise black and white piece. The capital letter is further decorated with some flourishes on the letter itself and more delicate ones across the top.
What makes this vintage image unique is just how big this large P image is. Far larger, than most of our drop caps and letter images. So. large, that you’re only seeing a smaller version right now. To see the full-size, just click on the image you see below.
