Alice Without the Words

What Classic Literature Looks Like Without the Words

"Here’s some decor for grammar nerds: Between the Words, a project by Chicago-based artist and web developer Nicholas Rougeux, visualizes Moby Dick, Peter Pan, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (above), and other classic texts through their punctuation.

The strings of punctuation are separated by Roman numerals denoting the chapters. The designs evoke the rhythm and cadence of the texts in the abstract, revealing the authors’ predilections for endless dialogue or numerous dashes. "
