Happy Monday to all, let’s begin the week by remembering why we’re all in our offices, at our computers, hovering over our sketchbooks today: to find beauty.

With that, let’s look at the typographer’s favorite expression of beauty: the ampersand. It’s often most accurate expression of the typographer’s feelings about the face at hand. 300&65 Ampersands (a nit: that’s grammatically incorrect) is a compendium of delicious specimens, one a day, each linking back to its foundry. Above, my favorite busty girl, Stilla. So glorious.
