 +====== Head Pieces ======
 +
 +The same changes have taken place with regard to head pieces that I have described under the article Fac; from the beautiful drawings with which manuscripts and some of the first productions of the press were illuminated.
 +
 +They gradually descended to [[e:​engravings-wood|engravings on wood]], which was the first step, then to cast metal ornaments, and then to the types called [[f:​flowers|flowers]],​ which were displayed in every variety of form that they were capable of, or that the ingenuity of the printer could devise.
 +These gave place to a piece of double [[b:​brass-rules|brass rule]], that is now out of fashion; and head pieces at the present day are only spoken of as things that once existed. //See// [[f:​fac|Fac]]. ​
