Truly scrumptious . . . &c, &c

An exciting parcel from Green Chair Press arrived in the post during the week, all the way from California: my copy of the latest issue of the journal Ampersand, together with two of Susan's lovely hand-printed broadsides:

'Poem Fragment' from Christopher Morley's nostalgic poem 'Smells', which I loved when I first read it on Susan's blog and reproduced it here.

And 'Etc' - a pleasing arrangement of ampersands, printed from wooden blocks. As regular readers will know, I've Got a Thing About Ampersands. And for very good reason, too, in my view.

So, an altogether scrumptious delivery, which brightened up a trying week.

Thanks for the anthology of ampersands. As Ralph Wiggums might say, "it's my favorite ligature!"
