Alphabet for hand embroidery

Help please!
I decided to make some friends needle books for Chritmas and embroider their initials on the front. I duly cut out my linen and then went to find my alphabet to stick on the window to trace off and then decided that I don't actually like their letters - too ornate as I intend to do their initials by using a lot of individual flowers so that the whole makes up their letter.
Does anyone know of any sites round the web which has letters suitable for tracing for hand embroidery please? I got nowhere useful with google.

If you have a word processing program with several fonts, maybe you have something already. Type the letters, enlarge them to the size you want and print them off.
Or, you might find something here:

You're welcome! I have used many of my word processing TT fonts for various projects, and my embroidery software will digitize TT fonts, so I have purchased a bunch of interesting ones.

Scroll down to "Alphabets for Monograms":

Also check eBay for vintage books on "Broderie Anglais", for books with vintage patterns for monogramming. Such books were common (some are no more than really few page pamphlets), up until the 1950's or so and featured various styles of monograms/alphabets for milady (or if she was lucky her daughters, a linen maid, or even to order at a shop), to embroider on all and sundry sort of things from linens to knickers.
