Ampersand

Patrick & Co

Sometimes I just say the word ampersand out loud because it's a great sounding word. Interrobang is a close second.

Patrick & Co. is the last (and best) independent stationery and office supply places in SF. Photographed in San Francisco's Financial District.

This reminds me of Engravers Gothic’s ampersand, which I enjoy.

I like how it almost "flicks" it's tail, like a sassy little ampersand who knows it.

This probably sounds mildly weird at best, but this ampersand totally reminds me of my ex-roommate's young cat, who would be sitting on the living-room floor cleaning her tail, then hear something, yank up her head, and look up and around in surprise with her big green eyes, tail still clenched between her front paws.
See it? :)

Yes! I have two cats, and they do this pose now and then. Maybe the designer was inspired by a cat? ;)
