Daily Drop Cap

an illustrative initial every day
The Daily Drop Cap is an ongoing project by typographer and illustrator Jessica Hische. Each day (or at least each WORK day), a new hand-crafted decorative initial cap will be posted for your enjoyment and for the beautification of blog posts everywhere. To use a Daily Drop Cap on your site or blog, follow the instructions in each post and read about the usage limitations. Daily Drop Caps should be used in blog posts only and not for personal logos or branding. Daily Drop Caps cannot be used in any printed materials or stationery. Enjoy!
