Did you know that the letter D is a very awkward letter? It may actually be my least favorite letter in the Latin alphabet. It’s just so…so unbalanced. It’s like a half circle but not. It’s straight on one side and round on the other. Usually the top is more curved than the bottom which creates weird proportion problems. It’s just awkward and I wonder if true typographers feel the same way.
Even though it is awkward and I don’t like it, I decided I wanted to make a drop cap alphabet and I am. So what does that mean? It means I had to make a stupid d. Should I say dumb d instead to create an alliteration? Ok, so it means I had to make a dumb d. Hope you like it. I kind of do.
