Jessica Hische drops a cap on yo @$$!
essica Hische is an illustrator and graphic designer whose work I had been admiring for years without knowing who actually created it. She did a lot of book covers, logo work, etc as a senior designer at Louise Fili, but struck out on her own last year.
A side project of hers is the Daily Drop Cap, where every day she uploads a beautifully illustrated letter for non-commercial use by pretty much anyone (as seen above). I believe she is on the fifth go-around of the alphabet as of this writing, but she has collected previous sets as letterpressed art prints for sale.
If $225 is too steep for the whole alphabet (hey that’s less than $10 a letter!) then perhaps $30 for individual letters is more your taste.
