The Adjustable Clampersand

The Adjustable Clampersand manufactured in Chicago and designed by long-time Core77 ‘core-toonist’ Lunch Breath” –

The Adjustable Clampersand is a rare and precious thing: a true Core77-born commodity. Its first inkling was an original Coretoon by Tony Ruth, showing the typographical tool in sketchy form. And now, with much hard work and horn-tooting, you can find the fully-fledged and functional Clampersand. The glittering conjunction is made from aluminum, cast at the Batavia Foundry outside of Chicago.

Writes the designer: “I always envisioned the Clampersand as an ideal bookend for an open ended shelf. I use them to clamp several books upright into a freestanding centerpiece. Or I simply stand it up by itself on a table. I’d recommend using it to clamp verbally associated objects together into some sort of visual pun: bacon and eggs, salt and pepper, turner and hooch. That sort of thing.”

The clamps receive a rough polish and a secondary base grinding, ensuring that they sit flat while clamped. While the Clampersand is fully functional, it is not recommended as an actual shop clamp, because the cast aluminum is a lower strength material than a traditional steel clamp.

You heard it (and saw it) here first: git your fresh Clampersands, clamp them around the house, shop and garden for all your bookending puns and visual run-on sentences. Punctuate your projects, support American
