Intriguing work about some of the most surprising things: punctuation symbology.

Charming and full of the most interesting stories, not just about punctuation, but about ARPANET, and the Romans, and the library of Alexandra, and the invention of printing, and the revolution of typewriters... leave by your bedside and dip in and out. Completely enjoyable.
