Recently, I was looking at some ampersands to use in a logo I was fantasizing about making, (given that it's one of those little personal projects of mine, it might never see the light of day), and I realized how much I love it.

The ampersand & (yes, that eight-lookalike symbol everyone's having trouble drawing has a name and a history, which is actually worth reading on wikipedia) always fascinated me because, i) it was always a challenge to draw and, ii) I don't know, I guess the fact a character deriving from two letters, which bears a story and meaning, excites the graphic designer in me. So, imagine my reaction when I found this blog on the SwissMiss blog. 300&65 Ampersands is essentially a daily celebration of the ampersand, one everyday.
