365 Ampersands

Type types and font fans, consider making a visit to the single-serving blog 300&65 Ampersands every day this year for a nice new ampersand, presented simply, sexily, for your enjoyment. Why the ampersand? Well, the site is so sparse that there’s not even an “about” page or explanatory blurb, but I imagine it has something to do with the rather abstract nature of the ampersand, which, without anything to its right or left, is just a beautifully choreographed set of loops and lines, and very much open to the individual interpretations of different typographers. So, for instance, today’s ampersand is a little meh, but Saturday’s (pictured) has a lot of character and last Monday’s is bat-shit crazy. (TheDailyWhat)
