for the love of ampersand

During my years studying design, I developed quite a soft spot for this little ampersand. Mostly because I had to do an extensive project drawing the transformation from the letters 'et' which mean 'and' in Latin to the shape that the ampersand is now. I made the drawings into a flip book and it was pretty interesting to see how the letters turn into the symbol. To this day I still love seeing the ligature because their shape is so beautiful. Don't you agree?
