Can anyone offer the name of a particular font that includes spectacular 'ampersands'? I need one for a wedding invitation I am creating. Thank you!
Not specifically about spectacular ampersands, but [[http://www.typography.com/ask/showBlog.php?blogID=98|Hoefler posted an article about the ampersand]] on their blog a while back.
have you seen Poetica?
Caslon Italic is still my favorite.
If you want a font with just ampersands, [[http://www.p22.com/p22_2004/images/typesamples/goudy_ands.html|Goudy Ampersands]] from P22's the one.
You may find some ampersandy inspiration (though not necessarily font suggestions) on the ampersand blog.
Agree about Caslon Italic – I used that on a poster about 8" high, just the ampersand.
These will do
