My favorite symbol of all is the ampersand. I’ve got more than one piece of art in my house dedicated to it, own more than one “&” necklace, and I’ve sat on getting an ampersand tattoo for years (the only thing holding me back is that I’ve changed my mind on font, design, and location over and over and I’m afraid of commitment).
There’s something elegant and fun about the symbol. And it’s a symbol with a nice history to it — it’s from the Latin word “et,” which means “and,” which is why when you look at an “&” in different fonts, sometimes it looks like an “e” and a “t.”
