I think we can all agree that Jessica Hische is a pretty big badass in the hand-drawn type world. If you’ve been following her Daily Drop Cap blog (since 2009) you’ll be just as excited as I am to know that Hische has partnered with Penguin’s art director, Paul Buckley, in the eventual release of a series of 26 hardcover classics. Each book will feature a drop cap unique to the series, the first six of which will go on sale November 27th. I love the gradient that’s apparent in these first releases and I hope it continues on throughout the series. And yes, I’ll need every last one so it’s a good thing they’re available for pre-order right here.
