Pilcrows and Interrobangs, oh my!

Here's a fantastic typography related treat!

Keith Houston is a medical visualization software designer by day, and by night writes about the history of punctuation marks. His new blog Shady Characters is a clearing house for his writings on the subject.

The article: The Pilcrow, Part 1 is a fantastic start and I can’t wait to read more in the coming days. (for the uninitiated, the pilcrow is the little double-stemmed reverse ‘P’ that signifies a new paragraph: ¶ )

Enjoy.
