Ampersand ID Chart from Douglas Wilson

12 Apr 2010, 10:31am

I was bad. I bought this. I didn’t consult the wife first. I hope I am not in trouble but this is fantastic. I already own a few Douglas Wilson prints and just couldn’t resist this one. Apparently there are 110 prints but only 15 available in the US. Not sure why but there you go.

Based on the Snellen eye chart, this three-color, letterpressed poster is designed to keep your typographic eye keen on the details of everyone’s favorite conjunction.

Hand letterpressed on bright white French 100lb. cover-weight “Sweet Tooth” Pop-Tone paper. Limited-edition of 110 prints, signed by the artist.

Each print comes with an identification key that details the names and weights of all 61 ampersands.

UPDATE: Sold the fudge out at Doug’s site but you can still get it over at Keep Calm.

UPDATE#2: Sold the fudge out EVERYWHERE. Mine came in the mail the other day and it is beautiful.

Not in trouble. Not at all. Beautiful print. Can’t wait ’til it gets here.
