Ellie Atherton Jazz Brunch

 

INVITATION

 

Our illustrators studied photographs of the wrought iron on the Pontalba and drew a similarly styled balcony. They then crafted a cipher monogram, in the style of the wrought iron and inset Ellie Atherton’s initials. The color scheme of silver, white and soft pink was used to coordinate with party décor.

 

 

 

PONTALBA

 

The wrought iron railings of the Pontalba building, built in the late 1840s, feature an “AP” cipher for Micaëla Leonarda Antonia Almonester, Baroness Pontalba.

 

 

ILLUSTRATION

 

Our illustrator studied the cipher letterforms of the original Pontalba ironwork, and created a hand drawn version for Ellie Atherton. Letterpress printing reinforced the dimensional nature of this monogram.
