100 Years of Solitude

Drop Cap for 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I decided to focus in on two main themes for this drop cap. Death is an everpresent theme throughout the book and the power of nauture is as well a recurring theme. This lead me to the idea of creating a skull using natural elements.

For the M I wanted to create a letter that recalled ancient manuscripts. Manuscripts communicate stories and record histories. 100 years of solitude in a way does just that- it recounds the historical and not so historical life of the Buendia family.

Let me know what you think!
