The Ampersand – It is often one of the most unique characters in a given typeface, with a lot of creative latitude, allowing the type designer to really express themselves. There are so many, how about a new one for each day of the year? Check out ampersandampersand.tumblr.com

Thanks to Daniel Sinker for bringing this wonderful book to the internets!
The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.
