Chaz DeS­i­mone’s 50th Amper­Art release is appro­pri­ate­ly titled Fifty & Fab­u­lous.

There’s noth­ing all that clever in this design…the amper­sand is the Amper­Art logo, a mod­i­fied Gara­mond ital­ic, & the words are set in the Amper­Art brand iden­ti­ty font, Helvetica.

What is spe­cial, though, is you—for tak­ing a look at each of my por­tray­als of “the amper­sand as fun & fab­u­lous art” every month.

Whether you’ve recent­ly sub­scribed or have seen all 50 from the start, thank you for join­ing our com­mu­ni­ty of amper­sand affi­ciana­dos & thank you for men­tion­ing Amper­Art to your friends who are fans of the amper­sand just like we are.

Fifty & Fab­u­lous is usu­al­ly heard around the time peo­ple are near­ing the half-​century mark in their lives. (Of course, we don’t see them as “old,” today’s 50 being the new 30.) So it might be a nice & sim­ple birth­day ges­ture to frame a print or make a card for the Birth­day Boy or Girl fea­tur­ing the new Fifty & Fab­u­lous Amper­Art design.

  1. This design reminds me of a tre­ble clef in music. At first glance, my brain read it as “Fifty Great­est Piano Songs” or some­thing sim­i­lar. Maybe I had a music book like this at one point. 

    Classy art!
