Monogramme zur Wäsche-Stickerei

Recommended Posts

I found this booklet in a drawer of an old sewing machine.

It’s a catalog of templates for monograms, alphabets and borders for embroidery, cross stitching, stencils, and roller stamps.

It’s mostly printed in black with a few pages in colour.

I couldn’t find a date of publication, but the use of Block on the cover implies it’s after 1907.

It’s of course not a type specimen, but I figured it could be of some interest anyway.

I scanned a few pages, let me know if you would like to see more of it.

One thing I find odd is the page titled “Albrecht Dürer-Monogramm”.

I mean, none of the samples seem similar in style to the actual Albrecht Dürer monogram...
