Daily Drop Cap

October 6th 2009

I LOVE this project by type designer extraordinaire Jessica Hische (who I’ve written about before). She’s designing a gorgeous decorative drop-cap for every alphabet letter and releasing one a day. They’re under a Creative Commons licence for free use on blogs, which is a genius idea for getting her work to go viral! Check out all the ones she’s done so far here.

    The OM-10 is a great camera. One of my favorite Flickr photographers uses it exclusively (keithdavisyoung). Film is so much better than digital, imo.

    Really interesting read. I've been thinking about doing the same thing and have the photography manual that my ad learnt his SLR skills from all those years ago. Olympus OM 10 SLR in the post. Can't wait.

    Hi there,

    I am a major OM fan, I bought my Om-1n for £30 on ebay about a year ago and went snapping all round waterloo bridge and the south bank!

    Have you thought about using some black and white film? I used Ilford Delta 100 to shoot my holiday in Cape Cod last year and the photos came out beautifully, ever so slightly overexposed which gave them that "holiday nostalgia"!

    I'm very jealous of the EP-1! Plus I agree with you about Jessica Hische (I expect we caught the drop cap bug on the same day: see!
