Morris Less

The initials of the font were created by William Morris, the nineteenth century typographer, and my contribution is minimal in this case. Even if I would like to clean a few lines, it wouldn’t raise to the quality of the original work or the accidents resulted by scans, prints and most probably reproductions through a very long time.


For anyone interested, in the paragraph above the first letter is separated with a short PHP code, so the HTML is generated automatically, something like this:
$text = get_the_content_html(); // the text
$initial = trim( $text[0] ); // get the first letter
$rest = substr( $text, 1 ); // exclude the first letter

Then all the elements are placed back, where the <i> tag is the initial, styled in CSS:
echo ‘<p><i>’ . $initial . ‘</i>’ . $rest . ‘</p>’;


William Morris age 53The Master at 53“William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was a British textile designer, poet, artist, fantasy writer, architectural conservationist, printer, translator and socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement. He was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he helped win acceptance of socialism in fin de siècle Great Britain.”
