The drop cap was one of the first design elements that I was introduced to. My freshman year (of high school) yearbook had ENORMOUS drop caps–we’re talking 300 point drop caps. Ever since, I’ve been drawn to ornate drop caps. Sometimes simple is better, but I love the decorative ones. I don’t know why, but my favorite drop caps are the ones that have a dark background and a striped foreground. Do you have any weird design preferences?
