“The best thing about the ampersand- its energy, its refusal to sit still. It is almost impossible to look at one and not think about its shape, or to draw one and not think about liberation.” From ‘Just my type’ by Simon Garfield.
This sums up how I feel about the ampersand that is tattooed on my wrist. I recommend you read this book- it’s funny!! It talks of ‘piratical cragginess’- who knew a book about fonts could be so hilarious!!
