Shady Characters: The secret life of punctuation, symbols & other typographical marks

300x452xshady-characters-book.jpg.pagespeed.ic.nnIb9MHYaqKeith Houston’s books was totally awesome and very interesting. This book is a collection of “serious scholarship” about punctuation and symbols used in print. Even the footnotes are entertaining. The author has a lovely sense of humour, and a clever ability to tell stories ranging all over the map and time. If you love trivia – read it. (submitted by M)
