MONOGRAMS
-----
Monogram of the entire alphabet
by Charles Demengeot
Charles Demengeot was a talented French heraldic engraver
who produced this monogram in 1877. It features every single
letter of the alphabet... can you spot them all?

This of course is not a typical monogram.

Monograms first appeared on coins, as early as 350BC. Many
of the early Greek and Roman coins bear the monograms of
rulers or towns. Victorian-period high-class persons adapted
the monogram for personal use as a symbol of their place in
society. In the Victorian era, rules for monograms were quite
simple and few. Monograms had the first initial on the left,
middle initial on the right, and last initial larger in the middle.

Now, rules are flexible and monograms can be seen on
just about anything.
