Does anybody know where I can find these kind of initials or anything similar? I saw them on a Penguin book cover designed by David Pearson.

Hi Jane. Not exactly what you might be looking for but, have a look at Viktor Koens works. He does pretty bizarre but interesting things. You can view his Toyphabet at here.

Scriptorium also has some decorative initials.

To answer my own question: the initials are Italian ornamental letters dating from 1839. They can be found in a book by Laurence Scarfe called "Alphabets: An introductory treatise on written and printed letter forms for the use of students".
