History of the Ampersand

History of the Ampersand

Gerald has linked to a great article on the history of the ampersand. I found it fascinating. The article is actually more than that. It’s got a short history and lots of photos about ampersands in media and type. {via presurfer}

You can see the evolution of the ampersand below (1 is like the original Roman ligature, 2 and 3 are from the fourth century, and 4-6 are from the ninth century).

These one-of-a-kind scarves are handmade by Kelley Deal from old sweaters. I love the one pictured above, it’s called Sweet Tooth. Kind of reminds me of Tom Baker’s Doctor Who scarf.

The Clock of Clocks: Using Analog Clocks to Created Digital Time

051809_rg_clock_clock_01.jpgWe love our clocks. Even though watches and clocks seem to be getting less and less use these days, it’s always refreshing to have a nice clock in the living room, the kitchen or the office to tell time accurately.

It’s a clock made out of other clocks.
