This is a single page of monograms in fancy lettering - suitable for framing or to use in your altered art/aceo/collage projects. This is one of just a few of these pages that has color - in this case some of the monograms are printed in robins egg blue.

Monograms beginning with the letters M, N, O, P, R, S, T, U, V, W, and Z are included. The reverse side of the page is blank. The actual color is slightly darker than it appears in the scan and the lighter/white stripe on the left is just from the scanner - it is not on the actual page.

This page measures 10" by just over 12-1/2", and the printed area measures about 8" x 11-1/2 ". It is in very good condition for its age - 127 years old! There is some foxing around the edges (not as dark as it looks in the scan) and some chipping and tears around the edges. None of the tears extend into the printed area.The page is larger than my scanner bed, so the edges don't show in the scan. The paper is fragile and must be handled with care.

This page came from an encyclopedia of monograms that was published in 1884. The book was designed to showcase different styles of ornate lettering in English, French, and German. The binding was destroyed and nearly all the pages were loose - sadly, the book itself was not salvageable. This page is an original, not a photocopy.

Please note: Many of the pages were cut slightly askew prior to being bound into the book. The slight variations in margins and page edges are original to each page.

This will ship 1st Class in a sturdy mailer.
