Deer, Friends and Ampersands: Free Typographic Clip Art

Last February, I teamed up with another local blogger to travel to Blissdom10 in Nashville. We’d never met in person until then, but became fast friends as we ventured to our first blog conference together and had an incredibly memorable time. Since then, our friendship has grown and flourished in so many wonderful ways. Just last Saturday, we dined together with our families for the first time. Not only did we have a FANTASTIC evening, but she brought me a selection of vintage and rare advertising & typography books- as she usually does when we get together since one of the many hats she wears includes that of a bookseller! She knows how much I appreciate those books that I normally have to search many months on Ebay for. She also brought to me the most beautiful hostess gift ever, a vintage mercury glass deer for my deer collection- breathtaking. How lovely is that?!
My special friend is Selena Cate aka: Apron Thrift Girl. You may have read me mention her before and you absolutely have to check out her blog for expert advice in reselling & thrifting, as well as fun and family and unique decorating.

So, thanks to Selena, I’m sharing free typographic clip-art over on my design blog today, scanned and modified from one of the vintage books she gifted. They are the word “THE’ in many forms as well as a multitude of ampersands.Thank you, Selena!

    Thank you for your friendship. You've made my first year in Sonoma County so precious and wonderful. It was very hard to leave my last community of friends as you can imagine. I'm so glad that the books are so appreciated and loved. And thank you for telling me the proper name for the "and" sign (as I have always called it). That is my new word of the day.

    What a wonderful blog post! It so uplifting and refreshing to see true acts friendship. So many people just don't "get" that a friendship IS a relationship, as a marriage, siblings, parents & etc. You gotta love them and nurture them and you'll be loved and nurtured in return.
    Thanks for the warm fuzzy!!

    Great post, as always. Aren't friends wonderful?!
    I love ampresands since they are in the middle of my name. One time I received a piece of mail at the office addressed to: Em & A Johnson — loved that! (Mom's name is S&ra and my Brother's name is R&el)
