A Brief History of Punctuation

This large-format book includes abstract calligraphic images by noted calligrapher Cheryl Jacobsen, a longtime collaborator with Sutton Hoo Press. The titles of the poems by Maurya Simon, Chair and Professor of Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside, are different punctuation marks. A Brief History of Punctuation was a finalist in the 2003 Minnesota Book Awards competition.

The piece was printed from Joanna typefaces on dampened Somerset, an English mouldmade paper. The binding by Bradley Naragon, Carol Kratz and C. Mikal Oness features suminagashi marbled papers in a variety of patterns along with applications of handmade Japanese vegetable rush paper and Cave Paper case tabs pulled outside the boards.
