Open Letter I

i-44An open letter I image from an 1860 biography about one of the world’s most influential printmakers – Gutenberg. How fitting that a book, printed with equipment quite similar to what Gutenberg used would have decorative letters for us to enjoy.

This open letter I is small, but, then again, most drop cap letters are. It’s not filled in, so hopefully you can add any colors you would like to match and enhance your own projects.
