For those Red letter days Drop Caps happen. Any day really. They started off life as decorated initials way back when in the days of illuminated manuscripts. Then printing came and they became the work of the rubricators and then somewhere soon after printing began, at least by the 1490's, they were printed directly into the text. This then is a collection of over a hundred glyphs from that closing decade of the Icunabula period. All of them are based on examples found in the works printed by Michael Wenssler in Basel. This font also contains a few useful pointing hands and a set of spacing characters.

This package includes both TTF, and OTF fonts with a full character map.
