Introduction

A small cap is a letter having the form of a capital letter but smaller.

Form

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

Example

  • Tʜᴇ ʙᴇsᴛ ʙᴏᴏᴋ
  • Mᴀɴᴜᴀʟ
  • 1sᴛ ᴇᴅɪᴛɪᴏɴ

Use

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.
