Daily Book Graphics #100 / Monograms




I don't recall where I found this 1927 book, but clearly it had spent a lot of time in a moldy place. It contains some useful guidance and nice examples of the Art Nouveau style.

I found this slip of paper in the book, at some point someone was trying to design a monogram for the initials M.F.F. I wonder when these were drawn 1935? 1970? we'll never know.

What a nice book, I would like to own this one. I don’t normally blow my own blog trumpet but check out my “transmission test cards” I think you would like them. I started writing about them in April, have you got anything on this type of TV graphics?

Kitty, I checked out your test patterns, very cool. I haven't come across any TV graphics in my collection but I'll keep my eyes open.
