A small cap is a letter having the form of a capital letter but smaller.
The alphabet in small caps:
ᴀ ʙ ᴄ ᴅ ᴇ ғ ɢ ʜ ɪ ᴊ ᴋ ʟ ᴍ ɴ ᴏ ᴘ ǫ ʀ s ᴛ ᴜ ᴠ ᴡ x ʏ ᴢ
- Tʜᴇ ʙᴇsᴛ ʙᴏᴏᴋ
- 1sᴛ ᴇᴅɪᴛɪᴏɴ
We use small caps in sections of text that need emphasis and where the use of uppercase capital letters would appear too intense to the reader.
