The source of inspiration for MFC Medieval Monogram is the 1934 “Book of American Types” by American Type Founders. Found in that specimen book was a set of Lombardic initials known as “Missal Initials” that was available in limited size metal castings. This wonderful typeface is now digitally recreated, revived, and updated with highly customizable monogramming in mind.
The inspiration source for Verre Monogram is an unusual hand-drawn letterset from a vintage embroidery publication which comes off more as a Drop Cap or Initial lettering style than monogram. Although its original intention is uncertain, it has many possibilities. This monogram design from the early 1900’s has been updated from a Capitals only to a Caps/Smallcaps set with decorative linking ornamentation. The unique stained glass look of the letterforms allows for a lot of play with manual coloring, and the newly created linking ornaments offer interesting bracelet monogram design options.
The inspiration source for Monarchy Initials is the 1934 Book of American Types by American Type Founders.

This wonderfully detailed initial style is now digitally recreated and revived for modern use.
The inspiration source for Bontebok Monogram is a unique and inventive hand-drawn letterset from a vintage embroidery publication combining a stylized geometric oblique all capitals letterset with bracketing marks to make a monogram.

While this monogram was originally intended to adorn handkerchiefs, it has many other possibilities.
The inspiration source for Glencullen Monogram is an eccentric hand-drawn letterset from a vintage embroidery publication combining two quarter circle letterforms to create a semicircular monogram. Originally intended to adorn handkerchiefs, it has many other possibilities. Numbers and letters can be combined to create decoratively framed monograms, while the left and right parenthesis characters help to create an even more customized bracketing. This is one of many monogram designs from the early 1900’s which fall into a two letter format that is either adorned or interwoven with ornamentation.
