Typography: Diminuendo

Diminuendo, quote from 'Blade Runner'

Since Roman times, diminuendo is a type arrangement in which a large letter or word leads the eye, gradually, to smaller and smaller words until a standard text size is established. Real-world tie-in: An abbreviated diminuendo is often seen today in the initial cap or large single letter that is sometimes used to lead the reader into a chapter of a book or a section of an article.
