New capitals in new designs

Now that we've spent the last two weekends learning to decorate medieval capitals and place them in Gothic texts, we can bring the idea into our own century.  Capitals today are still an important focal point of page design and they still add EMPHASIS to texts, but they are free to assume other identities and fill other functions.

Capitals don't have to be the first letter in a word.  Capital T , above, grows inside the word imagination. to demonstrate the sense of the quote.  

Two weeks ago, Etchy reminded us that the last letter in a word can be capitalized too.  

Enjoy finding new places for your capitals.
