Program: Experiment using Fancy Initials or Versals on colorful backgrounds A Monogram consists of a person's initials — usually a variation on the first, middle, and last name. And we recognize monograms whether your own or from company logos. We all enjoy seeing our own initials on personal items, such as stationery, business cards, clothing, wallets or purses, etc. Versals, in constrast, are known as big colorful initials from old manuscripts. We shall learn to experiment using fancy majuscules, minuscules and fonts for this month's program. We can practice and write calligraphic monograms on these colorful backgrounds. A PowerPoint program shall be given by new member, Mark Tresnicky. Handouts and practice blank paper shall be furnished. .
