monogram is a motif or symbol made by combining two or more letters. The earliest known examples of monograms date back to 350BC when the names of Greek cities used to be engraved on coins. Over the centuries, monograms have been used in religion, architecture and in royal symbols to denote power and authority.

In the late 19th century, companies and businesses started using their initials and acronyms to create monogram logos for their brands. The fashion industry was one of the first to adopt monogram logos to convey style, luxury and exclusivity (eg. Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel). Monograms have also been used as signatures by artists and craftsmen on paintings, sculptures and other works of art.
