The noisy, irreverent formal poems in Interrobang take clinical “phobias” and clinical “philias” as their conceit, each driven by relentless musical crescendos and decrescendos that underscore the mind's dark obsessions with anxiety and lust. Winner of the 2012 A Room of Her Own Foundation To the Lighthouse Publication Prize.

"?" (or "Interrobang") is an experimental piece of visual writing in which questions on the subjects of art, font, the author-reader relationship, anxiety, egotism, punctuation, absurdism, self-referential humor and language are embodied, examined, and exaggerated. Some of the vignettes include an interview with the author, a science fiction story about lemonade, an essay on obscure punctuation, and multitudes of self-indulgent speculations on the nature of writing. The author, admittedly conceitedly, attempts to force the audience to examine literary norms. Looking at the current formatting cage in which culture and convention has trapped the written word for far too long, "?" asks how to break free and revel in the meaningless liberty that is a blank sheet. This book is less an embodiment of its writing principles as it is a guidebook. It is at the same time a subversive instruction manual of how to take the other manuals less seriously and a challenge to the next generation of artists who wish to fearlessly explore beyond our self-imposed consensus.

Keith Houston's entertaining book, inspired by his popular blog shadycharacters.co.uk, tells the unexpected stories of some unusual, and familiar, typographical marks and reveals a fascinating history of writing. Every character we write or type is a link to the past, and in today's printed, electronic and scrawled writing their history stares right back at us. This book charts the lives of some of the most intriguing examples, like how the pilcrow went from its noble origins in ancient Greece to near obsolescence, only to be revived again in word processing software. Each character reflects the bust and boom endured by punctuation with each new technological innovation and together they form a rich history of written communication. Keith Houston is the founder of ShadyCharacters.co.uk, where he writes about the unusual stories behind some well-known - and some rather more outlandish - marks of punctuation.

Just My Type is not just a font book, but a book of stories. About how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. About why Barack Obama opted for Gotham, while Amy Winehouse found her soul in 30s Art Deco. About the great originators of type, from Baskerville to Zapf, or people like Neville Brody who threw out the rulebook, or Margaret Calvert, who invented the motorway signs that are used from Watford Gap to Abu Dhabi. About the pivotal moment when fonts left the world of Letraset and were loaded onto computers ... and typefaces became something we realised we all have an opinion about. As the Sunday Times review put it, the book is 'a kind of Eats, Shoots and Leaves for letters, revealing the extent to which fonts are not only shaped by but also define the world in which we live.' This edition is available with both black and silver covers.
