Public domain, drop cap N drawing. The letter N is quite dark and bold in this fancy letter image but is has delicate scroll-like designs that soften the overall appearance of the letter. It has a decidedly vintage look and an elegant one at that.
There are over 200 wonderful, vintage illustrations on Reusable Art that were included in Hill’s Album of Biography and Art. We have the author, Thomas E. Hill, for publishing such a wonderful resource in 1882.
