Tea & Wisdom, Material Treasures & Ethereal Pleasures
Meet Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible hardcover editions, featuring a specially commissioned illustrated letter of the alphabet by type designer Jessica Hische and a series design collaboration between Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley.
Penguin has just released the first six volumes in their Drop Caps series. These hard cover, well-designed volumes of classics have a beautifully rendered initial on the cover of each, e.g. "A" for Austen, and painted edges. Stunning individually, but as a collection they will make dramatic display on your bookself and would be a lovely gift for a young reader beginning his own library.
