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

Combined with luxurious packaging including hard-cut greyboard edges and liberal use of neon throughout, this book will be of great appeal to linguists, typographers and design-afficionados alike.
