# Multi-layered Goudy Initials with Lettrine

I bought the font LTC Goudy Initials from P22---as per the comment to this question---but now I wonder how to use this font with the package lettrine.

Below in my minimal non-working example:

\documentclass{article}

% Load the three layers of the LTC Goudy Initials font
\usepackage{fontspec}
\newfontface\firstlayer{LTCGoudyInitNew.otf}
\newfontface\secondlayer{LTCGoudyInitFlora.otf}
\newfontface\thirdlayer{LTCGoudyInitFill.otf}

% Create a command to print all three layers - later in color
\newcommand{\initialmaker}[1]{%
\firstlayer{#1}%
\llap{\secondlayer{#1}}%
\llap{\thirdlayer{#1}}%
}

\usepackage{lettrine,lipsum}
\setcounter{DefaultLines}{5}
\renewcommand{\LettrineFont}{\initialmaker}

\begin{document}
\lettrine{H}{ello world}
\lipsum[4]

\lipsum[3]
\end{document}


The output in the letter in the desired Goudy font but with a line height of one, not five.

\newcommand{\Lettrine}[2]{\lettrine[depth=1]{\initialmaker{#1}}{#2}}

The depth is required because the font now uses six lines instead of five causing the text to run over the bottom of the initial.
