A Daily "&"

By May 27, 2010

Follow me on:

The ampersand is just one of those characters that designers love to use. Whether it's a simple and prettier way to say "and" or a significant design element, the ampersand is often a great addition to a page. House Industries, makers of great fonts, takes it a bit further with pillows,  shirts and other objects.

I recently came across a Tumblr blog (thanks to one of our readers) that pays tribute to the character with a daily ampersand selection that links to the foundry's page. Check out 300&65 Ampersands for a daily dose of "&."
