font friday... drop cap #1... sneak peek

ere is a peek at what I have been working on this month.... Drop Cap #1. It has been great fun. And lots of good creative thinking. This is a Drop Cap font or an Initial Cap font. Even though it has all the letters of the alphabet it is not an alphabet font to be used for headlines or god forbid body copy. Plz don't type people's names in it either, it won't be pretty. It has no kerning or punctuation except a period which I am actually putting in against my better judgement. But it will have accent marks for all of you who do not live in the states.

There are basically 2 alphabets here. The lighter letters are lower case and the darker letters are upper case. The light and dark letters are interchangeable. I usually try to pick one that relates to whatever I am writing about. I really made these to have a set of initial caps to use on my blog. Eventually these will be sold as web fonts too.

This is to be used with one lovely cap all alone with body copy. A perfect example is how I started this post with the nice H. Now you do need to have a program that allows you to wrap copy. And you do need to know how to do that in your program. But none of this is hard to figure out.

Drop Cap #1 may be up for sale here by this time next week... in the mean time have a great weekend!
