A Chris Spooner, 30 Sexiest Ampersands Originally a ligature that combined the letters E and T of the Latin word 'et', the ampersand is now a common replacement for the word 'and'. Its form has evolved over centuries from the more script-like 'et' ligature where the letters are clearly visible, to the more stylised character we recognise on our keyboards today. I browsed through 100s of typefaces to find the font with the most unique and flamboyant ampersand designs.
This is another great use of expressive typography. Using the “o” instead of any other letter was the best choice with this word. The “o” in this case gives us the “aw” sound when saying the word “drop” rather than a long o sound like the word “stove”. Great job on this one.
