Monograms and Ciphers
by Albert Angus Turbayne
Publisher: T. C. & E. C. Jack 1906
Number of pages: 306
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.
