Drop Caps

My PDF books have mostly used drop caps at the start of every major section, see e.g. (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.
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?
