A red and blue calligraphic decorative letter “A” from a 14th century manuscript, reproduced in this 1860 book. The squiggles would have gone into the left margin. I’ve made lots of sizes to make it easier for you to use this on a Web page as an initial cap (it won’t be so good as a drop cap, although you could try); remember to link back here if you use it!

O, M, A, D, U or V, I or J, L.
