About MFC Keating Monogram Font Family
The inspiration source for MFC Keating Monogram is an alphabet set from the book, Monograms and Alphabets for Combination by Dollfus Mieg & Cie, first published in the 1890s. What began as 26 referenced outline/shadowed letters became an over 730 character font in order to create its unique interwoven monogram effect! Expanding on the theme even more, MFC Keating Monogram also includes a series of Chromatic Layering fonts to create even more customization options.
MFC Keating Monogram can create one, two, or three letter monograms as well as a unique two letter intertwined monogram style - made by simply typing a lowercase immediately followed by a Capital (using OpenType Ligatures). Classic decorative letterforms combine to make elegant monograms, and you can also choose to type in all capitals or all lowercase for simple title and headlines as well. (Note that due to the manner in which combination monograms are formed, some letters like the "I" have script-like forms to avoid being hidden in overlaps).
MFC Keating Monogram is the original Outline/Shadowed style. MFC Keating Monogram Solid is a version with the original outline filled in. MFC Keating Monogram One is the Capital letterforms only in both standard and ligature glyphs. MFC Keating Monogram Two is the Lowercase letterforms only in both standard and ligature glyphs. MFC Keating Monogram Stencil contains the inner fill of the original Outline/Shadowed style, and while the standard Capitals & Lowercase do not appear as stencil in style, the ligatures are.

About Monogram Fonts Co.
Monogram Fonts Co. is a product of type designer, Brian J. Bonislawsky, known for his involvement in the Astigmatic One Eye Typographic Institute, the Breaking the Norm Font Library, VersusTwin Type Foundry, and Foundry-X.
In looking ahead and planning his wedding to his optometrist fiancée, he realized that monogramming seemed an integral part in most wedding invitations as well as personal item branding. However, there seemed to be a distinct lack of monogram typefaces, outside of embroidery fonts. As a result, and with the desire to change that, a new font company is born with the hopes of becoming the Monogram Authority on the web!
