Drop Caps

My PDF books have mostly used drop caps at the start of every major section, see e.g.
http://www.forgottenfutures.com/game/ff11/planetary.pdf (about 1109K),
a collection of Weinbaum's stories which has a drop cap at the start of each story.

But most of the Victorian / Edwardian books I normally use as source material would have had something much more ornate, see e.g.
http://www.forgottenfutures.com/game/ff8/nesbit.htm
which reproduces the drop cap illustrations used for Nesbit's biography.

I'm thinking that it might be fun to use some legible ornate drop caps for the next book - however, I'd need something that works well with the font I generally use, Albertus Medium, which is nice and clear and has a look I like.

Here's something I've tried with a drop cap font called Kramer, which appears to be freeware:







Does this work for you? If not, which font would you recommend?
