Between the Words: Exploring Punctuation in Literary Classics

 

Artist Nicholas Rougeux’s Between the Words is “an exploration of the visual rhythm of punctuation in well-known literary works”. Rougeux removes all of the letters, numbers, spaces and line breaks from famous texts, displaying just the punctuation in a continuous line of symbols starting at the top center and spiralling inwards.

All literature used is in the public domain and most are retrieved from Project Gutenberg, an incredible online archive offering over 50,000 free ebooks.

If you’re interested in prints of the awesome posters below, Rougeux has made them available through his Zazzle.com storefront. I’ve placed direct links to the prints beneath each poster in the gallery below.
