An interesting article about Small Caps from I Love Typography.
Small caps are one of those things that I’ve never noticed properly before. I understand little about typography but I am intrigued and find letterforms and font design very beautiful.
One of the examples is small caps within a piece of text talking about PRIDE and HUMILITY. This is were I have probably seen small caps used most, in older text and old-fashioned novels. Still I shall see if I can find some small caps used correctly elsewhere today. But it won’t be online as it seems these unusual font types are not respected by the www.
I wonder how many specialist ‘font grammar’ items like this will be lost in time.
