Dropcap Stamps

Drop cap stamps and postcard design based on Greek architecture and their use of geometry.

When the Phoenician alphabet was adapted in Greece in 1000 BCE, it was greatly improved by strict aesthetics. The Greeks applied mathematics and geometry to refine the letter shapes more structured and uniform. A baseline and spaces between the letters were considered for the first time in history. Greek architecture influenced by mathematical and geometrical concepts further informed the drop caps, which balanced letterforms reflect their accomplishments.
