Ampersands

A character that symbolises and abbrieviates the word 'et' or 'and' developed from the letters E and T being written together to form a ligature it can be tracked back to the first century AD but entered common usage in 1837. Plenty of time for many shapes, forms, materials and types to evolve. This vast collection belongs to a graphic designer who has always been fascinated by them.
