Ampersand of the Week 42/2011

Pretty spacy ampersand this week, from Cambalache, an equally spacy font.

Ampersand of the Week 35/2011

This week’s ampersand hails from the just-a-little-bit-crazy corner of typography, but that just makes it awesome. Here it is, Batory Middle:

Ampersand of the Day

Today’s (or this week’s) ampersand is from Rooney Pro by Jan Fromm, a very nice-looking serif family that will set you back a mere $546 if you want them all. Unfortunately, it does not contain Greek letters, so it cannot really be used for scientific work requiring mathematics…

Dessert-ation

Ich unterbreche die Lawine von Bookmarks-Posts ja nur ungern, aber das hier könnte es wert sein. Nach wochenlangem Basteln sind nämlich endlich alle Änderungswünsche vom Betreuer meiner Dissertation, zusammen mit meinen eigenen Änderungen, eingearbeitet und ich habe mal eine erste Kopie der gedruckten Version bestellt – um die Arbeit einzureichen, brauche ich später vier davon.
