As I'm always searching for new fonts (for covers and chapter titles), I found one where each letter is different, and I immediately thought: dropcaps. However, I have questions on how to implement this.
1) What happens with quotes, say for dialogue opening lines? Do you drop the quote as well (difficult since the font doesn't include very impressive quote symbols).
2) What kind of license would I need? I know, to embed a font in an ebook you require an 'embedded font', which it typically prohibitively expensive (hundreds, at a minimum, building rapidly for a recognized font). However, due to that issue, I'm considering restricting it to my print versions. Would I require a separate license to include a custom font in a pdf, and if so, would that require a digital embedded font license?
I realize few will know the answer to these questions here, but I'm hoping a couple might know one or two of the details.
Looking at it again, it may not work at all, as the font is serif (i.e. it wouldn't blend in with the other letters) and likely wouldn't match my cover/header fonts. :( Still, I'm curious about how dropcaps are handled, just in case I do decide to go forward with it.
