The inspiration source for Glencullen Monogram is an eccentric hand-drawn letterset from a vintage embroidery publication combining two quarter circle letterforms to create a semicircular monogram. Originally intended to adorn handkerchiefs, it has many other possibilities. Numbers and letters can be combined to create decoratively framed monograms, while the left and right parenthesis characters help to create an even more customized bracketing. This is one of many monogram designs from the early 1900’s which fall into a two letter format that is either adorned or interwoven with ornamentation.
