Amy Sacker's Monograms
Her earliest signatures are simply her initials, her first initial and her last name, or even a script signature. Later, she began to use the interlocking monogram of either AS or AMS. her decisions about what signature to use may relate as well to the setting, illustration or cover. In one of her last known illustrations, from 1916, she returns to utilizing her full name (see below).
