breaks

In headlines, do prepositions go at the end or at the beginning of the line? What about articles?

I’ve seen arguments for both. Some say phrases with prepositions can’t be broken because that would be against the unnatural flow. Others say a headline is better readable if each line makes sense on its own, or at least its beginning does.

Example (nevermind balancing lines, this is not the point here):

An Act to approve
the Constitution
of the United Nations
Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization

or

An Act to approve the
Constitution of the
United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organization

Hey everyone,

I recently started to create a serif with the "e" as the very first letter
and fell in love with the break in the upper bow.
This became the main idea of the type.

Starting up with the lower cases (still not all finished) it's all a big
building site but I think it's worth it.

I would really appreciate critics on my first steps on copy types
and with a little help from you, I would like to push it further!

Can't wait for your input,

Artur
