Punctuation Lust

I just love the graphic element of punctuation. But why?

I personally believe the internet can be credited with the rise in the popularity of punctuation. It all started with the @ in our email addresses. Suddenly the at (@) symbol became the most important key on the keyboard. But not to be left behind was the dot (.) and the hashtag (#).

When symbols begin to play such an important role in our daily communication, it isn't surprising that they'd begin to work themselves into our design and decor as well. Here's some great unique, handmade, products honoring those nimble little marks.

Middle Right: Ampersand Art
Bottom Left: Quotable Pillow

Isn't it fun celebrating good grammar?
