The Ampersand

Posts Tagged ‘signage’


Chinatown, San Francisco, Calif The last three posts were all from Frank Synopsis. He has a bunch of other ampersands in his photostream.

Chu’s Florist

Jennifer found this interesting specimen in Redwood City. This example is really more like a clef than an ampersand, but I like that you can get birds and flowers all in one place. The sign is a bit faded, but the typography is interesting in it’s own way. Here is another example of a clef.

Jeff Canham

The ampersand gave me the excuse to post Jeff Canham’s work. Lots of hand lettering, signage, and Tijuana Brass inspired stuff.
