Open Letter P

p-18This vintage drop cap letter is a little different in that it just includes the outline of the design – great for colorists and changing the letter to match your project. It is from an 1860 biography about the printmaker Gutenberg – what better place to find great typeface and print foundry images like this open letter P. It has leaves along with a nice capital P. Too bad it’s not a bit bigger but hey, most of the time we use drop caps, we want them to line up nicely with the text.
