A historical look at the Ampersand from a typographical point of view.

By the way, if you are at all interested in fonts and typography, typography.com is a great resource.  I have kind of a hold over interest on the topic from my brief design/desktop publishing days – back when I could actually identify many fonts on sight by name, and always knew which font I was looking for for whatever project I was working on.  (Unlike now, where I usually have to switch to Font Book and scroll through the font list trying different fonts to see what they look like.)
