Free Posters for Reader 'n' Writers

My friend (and the designer of the new book cover for 2nd Edition of The Frugal Book Promoter!) has a new kind of club going. It is marketing genius, a way to introduce people to his graphic talents. He is Chaz DeSimone,

His typographic design project features what he considers the most interesting and beautiful character, the ampersand.  He says,

  • “Did you know that the ampersand used to be the last letter in the English alphabet?
  • “And do you know how it got its name?
  • “In fact, did you ever wonder why it is the shape it is, and why it has been designed in so many different configurations, most of which are valid and express exactly the same meaning? (Some are not true ampersands, probably because the "designer" did not know what the symbol is supposed to represent.)

“I will be explaining (and maybe surprising) you with the answers to the above questions, as I send you each AmperArt poster in the series. You'll also get some creative ideas from other subscribers on how they display their AmperArt pieces.

Right now, however, let's start your AmperArt collection with the first poster in the series, "Art & Design."

After you’ve signed up, your art comes to you with printing suggestions, etc. I can see this one in the office where I writer (it has yellow furniture!). Subscribe here:

Visit Chaz's blog to see how he publicizes his clients and a little more on this poster project:

Wait until you  see his first few designs in this future. You'll want to spice up your office for sure! And watch for the cover he did for me on my soon-to-be-released book!
