Back in 2010, Shady Characters got started with a collection of articles on unusual marks of punctuation. Each mark, such as the pilcrow (¶), interrobang (‽) and ampersand (&), is covered in a separate series. Read them here:
- The Pilcrow (¶)
- The Interrobang (‽)
- The Octothorpe (#)
- The Ampersand (&)
- The @-symbol
- Irony & Sarcasm Marks
Since then, I’ve added series on Field Trips (journeys to places of special interest to punctuation-philes) and Shiny Characters (forays into the world of typesetting), and I continue to publish regular articles on punctuation, books and everything in between. Visit the home page, subscribe to the RSS feed, or sign up for email notifications to get new articles as they appear.
Alternatively, you may wish to take a look at the list of articles I’ve written for publication elsewhere.
