The Friday Five: The Beauty of the Ampersand

Today I’m featuring a bit of typography…the simplicity and the interesting form of the ampersand to be exact. I have never been able to actually write it accurately (does anyone else have this problem?) but it does look pretty cool in various typefaces.

      Hi Daisy!
      The ampersand world is a pretty new one to me. I am absolutely amazed with all the ampersand typography that people have created! The brooch is cute (white of course!). And I kind of just like saying the word ampersand. It’s a good one!
      Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment!
