Monogramma from Wiescher

Gert Wiescher’s new Monogramma is a set of 14 fonts made for creating entwined monogram initials. Monogramma Base displays these stately Roman forms plainly, without any overlay. The rest of the 13 fonts double to cover every possible two-letter combination. For example, in Monogramma GH covers all the ‘G’s and ‘H’s. Type ‘A’ and you get ‘GA’, ‘B’ gives you ‘GB’. In the lowercase, ‘c’ returns ‘HC’, ‘d’ becomes ‘HD’. No features you have to enable—it’s made to work all from the font selection menu and with a little know-how.

Lastly, the question of where to put these interlocking forms; Some have suggested the usual places—on the bath towels, the handbag, the pocketknife. Perhaps cut into the stepping stones in the garden or at the bottom left corner of the blank invitation cards. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
