For the very diligent reader please see Wikipedia explanation below. I designed this image as a link between two or more letters or words, for example M&B or Ella & Jake.
Can be bought individually or with any other letter, or make up your own word.
"It was also common practice to add the "&" sign at the end of the alphabet as if it were the 27th letter, pronounced as the Latin et or later in English as and. As a result, the recitation of the alphabet would end in "X, Y, Z, and per se and". This last phrase was routinely slurred to "ampersand" and the term had entered common English usage by 1837"
