Jacob Hübner: Geschichte europäischer Schmetterlinge, 1793
I’m not sure which I like more, the caterpillar or the font.
I wonder if there’s an animé where a tentacle monster courts a woman in a gentlemanly fashion.
This is the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen.

The ampersand was derived during the creation of the Roman cursive alphabet beginning in the 1st century AD. ‘Et’ is the latin word for ‘and’. The ‘e’ and the ‘t’ were rendered together as a ligature to create a beautiful ampersand. The phrase “and per se and” blurred together creates the word “Ampersand”. The original Roman cursive alphabet ended with “&” instead of “z” (……x, y, z, &). The ampersand is a beautiful part of history that we see everyday. Look closely at our collection of ten ampersand letterpress coasters from various typefaces to see some examples of ET and how it’s shape transformed over time.
