ometimes I like to highlight inspiring people who have incredible work. I’ve been following typographer and illustrator Jessica Hische for a little while now. She has awesome work that I love to look at and was recently featured as the Letter Cult Person of the Year. Check out her website is and her blog. Here is her description of the daily drop cap, a internet type project she has created. (the S to the left is one of these drop-caps!)
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.
Daily Drop Cap is a project I started in September of 2009 in which I illustrate a decorative letter every day (or at least every work day). The project will continue for approximately twelve alphabets and are available for non-commercial use as drop caps on your personal blog.
