An alphabetical treasury of monogram designs for inspiration and practical use. Monograms, once indicators of social or commercial exclusiveness, are now symbols of creativity, testaments to the idea that everyone deserves to individualize his or her own things. This collection of over 11,000 handsomely engraved initials, ciphers, crests, insignias, emblems, badges, and shields, ranging from elaborate Gothic figures, to restrained Victorian creations, to elegant, floral Art Nouveau triumphs, will be useful to anyone working in the field of graphic design, both as a compendium of the very best monogramming work of the past, and as an inspiration to create new work, commercial and artistic.--From publisher description.
