Review:

The short texts, written by Anna Davies, provide a brief overview of the symbols’ history – the dagger, obelus, underscore, caret and many more.―eyemagazine

We recommend this book to all whose eyes lies in the details ind the reading between the letters and lines and to those who love typography and design. ―typostrate



Huge kudos to writer Anna Davies for her elegant, poetic writing that magically fits in-depth content into bite-sized chapters.There is something appealing to me about a beautiful little typography book that reads like a haiku.―jamieeby
