Exploring the secret lives of punctuation marks, This Is Me, Full Stop – written and designed by Here, published by Penguin – takes the reader on a playful typographic journey through the wonderfully visual world of grammar.
This Is Me, Full Stop
Expanding on their personalities and possibilities, the book tells the story of each punctuation mark’s character from their own point of view, in their own words. Who each mark truly is remains the reader’s delight to discover and decide, though certainly the full stop loves endings, the comma is addicted to resting, and the semicolon has the mystery of a wild animal…
Featuring 12 punctuation marks and over 50 different typefaces, the book was written by Philip Cowell (Here’s in-house writer) and designed by Caz Hildebrand (creative partner at Here). The British edition, This Is Me, Full Stop, is published by Penguin Random House UK imprint Particular Books, and the American edition, This Is Me, Period, is published by Clarkson Potter.
