Review: Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols, and Other Typographical Marks

Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols, and Other Typographical Marks
Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols, and Other Typographical Marks by Keith Houston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a delight! Such a neat idea, writing a book about those typographical characters we see all the time and don’t aways pay a lot of attention to. It’s easy to take them for granted. At first I thought it would be hard to get through the book, but the writing style is fun and engaging (the writer obviously loves the subject). Recommended, especially if you love typography!
