I took all these photos – I didn't trawl flickr for them, just put them 
on flickr so that we could point to them.  The photos are taken from a 
small pile of newspapers and magazines I have collected over the past 
four years.

Fwiw, the initial letter styling tends to occur in the editorial 
sections of the newspapers, rather than in the news sections, and 
there's usually only one per article.

hope that clarifies things,
