We’re back! After a long hiatus (involving real-life gainful employment) Red Ampersand has risen, phoenix-like, from the ashes.

Strangely appropriate, perhaps, that the word phoenix reaches us, via Old French and Latin, from the ancient Greek word relating to the purple-red dye of Phoenicia, in turn from the word for ‘blood-red’, phoinos. Celebrated here with Professor Dumbledore’s pet phoenix, Fawkes.*

Do get in touch to discuss any work you’d like us to take on. We’ll be here preening our feathers.
