10 carefully crafted display ampersands

“The year was 1887. Dierk Einhard Haäfe Master Typographer and Johan VanEngelbert Haph Suspected Wizard were inventing a typography machine to compete with Mergenthaler’s newly unveiled Linotype. With Haäfe’s typography experience and Haph’s scientific and technical know-how, they were sure to revolutionize the design industry. Misjudging the combined radioactive effects of (then unknown) plutonium and liberal use of Dr. Kurl’s Moustache Wax ™, Johan inadvertently sparked a quantum flux ripping space-time wide open and transporting the designers to the 21st Century. With no hope of return, they set about re-establishing themselves as prominent designers, quickly adapting to new technology with old-world flair.”
