the tumblr site 300&65 ampersands has dedicated an entire year to compile a collection of different ampersands in a range of typographic variations in 2010. the series includes ‘skinny, ostentatious, plain but dependable and leafy ones. there are ampersands that are elegant, graceful and serene but that didn’t leave out the stumpyawkward, stout or the festively plump.’ there are also ‘dottyopulentstraightforward ampersands & ampersands that didn’t give an ampere’s and. then there was one that suspiciously resembled a certain glazed and loopy baked good – there were more loopy and loopier ones too. there was even one that tried to go 3D.
