You see lots of these devices around at the moment. I couldn't find one to go along with this blog post, so I made my own. Black lines with generous kerning too. I'll see if I can spot some this week.

I love this device. What is it called? I usually call it the X or cross, but I'm sure there's an official name for it. I always associate it with monograms, I think the first time I saw one it was used as part of it. I would love to see some really early examples of it, because I've seen it used on some pretty old stuff. I think it's a strong versatile symbol.

Is it a bug or a feature that your example dusrupts the word order? Depending how you see it, more or less like Yoda it reads.
