9781908714282: Glyph: A Visual Exploration of Punctuation Marks and Other Typographic Symbols

Glyph is a look into the representations of marks and glyphs in the Latin alphabet. From & to } to *, each mark has a brief explanation of its use and history, and a grid of its most interesting typographic variations. Who knew, for example, that the ampersand was once a letter in the alphabet?!

A strikingly designed and packaged book featuring hard-cut greyboard edges and liberal use of neon throughout, this book will be of great appeal to linguists, typographers and design-afficionados alike.

Review:

The short texts, written by Anna Davies, provide a brief overview of the symbols' history - the dagger, obelus, underscore, caret and many more.--eyemagazineWe 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
