Drop Cap update

17 Feb

Last week I posted about Ms. Jessica Hische’s Daily Drop Cap project and how awesome her hand lettered alphabets are. Well last week she finished her final alphabet and started a new chapter in the project. The new alphabet is featuring some amazing design and typographical talent. Not only will you get to see a fancy letter from some great artists, but, for me, it will be a whole new list of talent to check out!


Today’s blog brought to you by the letter….

7 Feb

As an avid lover of all things type, I love perusing any work by the lovely
Jessica Hische but her hand lettered type is my favorite. If only I had a hand steady enough for this type of work…heh heh heh….”type.” I love puns. But seriously, Hische is not just wicked talented but generous as well. If you visit
The Daily Drop Cap you can see twelve hand lettered alphabets she as created, as well as find out how you can use them to dress up your blog! She also has a store to buy letter-pressed prints of some of them. Letter press is dreamy no matter what you do with it.

The Design Sponge got Ms. Hische’s permission to use the daily drop caps in this lovely DIY, faux embroidery project! I put it on my very long list of DIYs to try.

By the way, I did Wii Boxing and Wii Rowing this morning. I’m glad typing only uses my fingers. My arms huurrt!
