Monograms are immensely useful and eye catching visual devices consisting of two or more letters interwoven in artistic harmony. They lend themselves to numerous graphic applications: stationery, fabrics, advertising, book illustration, greeting cards, posters, menus, logos — virtually any project requiring symbolic or high-recognition lettering. The present volume offers graphic designers an unusually comprehensive collection of contemporary monograms — over 1,300 attention-getting designs, arranged alphabetically for convenience. Each letter of the alphabet is combined with every other letter, creating a versatile archive of monograms in an incredible array of type styles: 3-D, shaded, calligraphic, Gothic, ribbon, block, cartoon, script, Oriental, digital letters, and hundreds of others. Moreover, many monograms appear in more than one style for added flexibility. In addition to an enormous variety of typefaces, the monograms embody numerous spacing variations: overlapping, interlocking, and various other arrangements that offer the utmost versatility to designers. You'll also find a useful selection of monograms incorporated into larger illustrations: a necktie, automobile, tote bag, coffee mug, and other familiar objects. Graphic artists, illustrators, typographers, and students will find this collection indispensable — a nearly inexhaustible array of imaginative lettering configurations, arranged for maximum convenience — ready to solve a myriad of design problems. Best of all, every monogram is royalty-free — ready to use without any prior permission or fee.

Chicago–based jewelry engraver J. M. Bergling (1866–1933) created thousands of letter styles, signets, monograms, and ciphers. A noted author on the subjects of lettering and heraldic design, Bergling created books that became standard references of his era. He assembled his first book, Art Monograms and Letters,with the hopes of inspiring other etchers, engravers, sign painters, and artisans. This volume contains selected illustrations from that publication in addition to his complete Art Alphabets and Lettering,which comprises 96 pages of layouts and letter styles ranging from simple to ornate. Commercial artists, designers, calligraphers, engravers, amateurs, and professionals will prize this exclusive edition as a source of high-quality images and alphabets. This reference book features an appreciative Foreword by artist and author James Gurney, which places Bergling's works in historical context.

In laying out this book I have put into it the experience of many years of actual work in the designing of Monograms, Ciphers, Trade-Marks, and other letter devices. I have given the work much careful thought in order to present the most useful material, to give that material on a good workable scale, and in such a way that any design can be quickly found. By the arrangement of the designs the plates form their own index. ..A. A. TURBAYNE.
