This half-circle monogram font is the perfect choice for if you want a cirlce monogram but aren't ready to go all the way. The inspiration is a vintage sans serif letterset from an embroidery publication. The font was created initially to be embroidered into handkerchiefs, giving it that kitch, classic look. The font joins together to create a semi-circular monogram of letters, and then there are optional flourishes to round out the full circle (when you're ready). These ornaments were pulled from antique specimen books, given a brush up, and then tweaked to be able to be combined with the font set. It makes a lovely accent and complete the monogram's full form. Hearkening back to the early 1900s, this is one of many monogram designs that offers a two letter format that is either adorned or interwoven with flairs and ornamentation.
