The BARONIAL MONOGRAMS fonts are designed to create unique blackletter style monograms. Optional decorative elements tie in the smaller, outside letters; see the Read Me file in the download.
The letterforms were inspired by the analog font “American Text” as reproduced in Dan X. Solo’s Gothic and Old English Fonts (Dover, 1984.) I’ve redrawn the font with only 90- and 45-degree angles, and reshaped a number of other letters completely to fit the monogram format. Could be used as a matching titling font; large and small caps only.
The BRACELET MONOGRAMS set of 8 fonts lets you create custom monograms or linking text, in oval or octagonal letters, with black and white backgrounds and a variety of decorative end pieces. Inspired by the font “Tableau” as reproduced in Dan X. Solo’s Special Effects and Topical Alphabets.
The fourth set of my popular monograms fonts, this one lets you make 2-letter monograms in the angular, intersecting “college team” style. The set of four fonts includes all solid, all outlines, and two mixtures, as seen in the third and fourth columns above. The are 8 different frames you can use, too.
The sixth in my series of monograms fonts, ENTWINED MONOGRAMS is designed to make 2-letter monograms this unique decorative style. Inspired by an example of c. 1903 lettering by J. G. Schelter & Giesecke, Leipzig, as reproduced in Treasury of Authentic Art Nouveau Alphabets (Dover, 1984). Characteristic of art of that period, the letters are fanciful and biomorphic.
The GREEK MONOGRAMS are Greek variants of my popular Bracelet, Circle and Collegiate Monograms. Each set has all the varieties of the originals and work with your standard QWERTY keyboard to produce custom Greek letter monograms. Go Greek!
The third set of my monograms fonts, this one includes 4 fonts to produce 2-letter hexagonal and 3-letter octagonal monograms. Separate fonts in each shape let you create monograms with either a white or black background. You can choose to use the frame or not with any monogram. Both shapes include 2 other frame shapes; the octagonal monograms offer the added possibility of 1-letter and “A&B” style monograms.
Set of 4 fonts that let you make custom 3-letter monograms in an elegant, narrow diagonal shape. There are 2 styles (Holmes, a blackletter, and Watson, a deco sans serif) and a Regular and Inline version of each. There are 9 decorative frames that you might use and combine for more variety.
LACE MONOGRAMS is a set of 2 fonts to create custom 1-, 2- or 3-letter monograms in a romantic script style. Includes solid and outline fonts, which can be mixed for more variety. Thanks, Mike, for getting me started on this one.
MOD MONOGRAMS is a set of 2 fonts that let you make custom 2- or 3-letter monograms in a groovy 60s style with a choice of black or white backgrounds and a variety of decorative borders and other elements. The chart below shows you some of your border choices; there are also 1-letter monograms with cute icons from Harold’s Pips.
Like my Vine Monograms, ROMAN MONOGRAMS began with a request and were inspired by machine “pantograph” engraving (see the brass A at left.) Unlike most of the other monogram fonts, these letters do not overlap or even touch; the fonts can even be used as matching text fonts too.
ROYAL WEDDING is set of 4 fonts that let you create custom 3-letter monograms in an elegant, somewhat Versal style with a choice of decorative frames. The set includes Solid, Inline, Outline and Engraved variations which can be mixed for even more variety.
