This has been driving me crazy all day.
I'm trying to think of the technical term used for the embellished artistic capital letter that's placed at the beginning of a paragraph ... very common in fairy tales etc...
one letter... sometimes has vines or snakes all over it. A little artsy picture instead of just a plain old letter.
Can anybody tell me what the name for this is?!?!?!
I'm going nuts!
It's called a "decorative initial"
Not very interesting is it? But that's it
