Not sure if this question fits more here or in calligraphy category, but I will risk putting it here.
Does anyone know how Eth and Thorn characters looked like historically? By "historically" I mean in medieval manuscripts. I am developing drop cap initials for my typeface, and I wanted to give them a more calligraphic look. Unfortunately I have no idea how these two characters looked like in their calligraphic forms. I thought I would pose the question here before I go digging through tons of Old English and Icelandic manuscripts trying to find two characters, which are probably quite rare in their capital forms.
I would very much appreciate any information. Images even more so.
