This elegant lettering piece is by Erik Marinovich (See also the cover artwork of 8 Faces No.5). Produced for the Smithsonian Magazine for an article on the Accidental History of the @ Symbol. 
Although the first documented use of @ was in 1536, the symbol did not rise from modern obscurity until 1971.
Well worth reading considering that you probably use this glyph every day. Here High-res
