Where would we be without punctuation, to make sense of it all?

I found some wonderful, vintage wooden letterpress wood type blocks a wee while ago. They came to me from Dublin and had clearly been sitting, unloved, in a shed for years and years.

I set about cleaning them up a bit and what magical things emerged from under the dust and ink...I fell in love with these warm, tactile pieces of printing history. I set off on a hunt for more and this is the result...

There is still some ink and paint on the blocks, and they do have some dinks and scratches, but that is part of their history and charm. Now they can be part of your history and charm! Not only that, but they are eco-friendly too, as they are being rescued and re-purposed.

I think these words and letters look great sitting on a shelf, desk or mantelpiece. Each one is different and unique.

This is a "Pile of Punctuation"...a perfect gift for your Favourite Grammar Specialist!

This "Pile of Punctuation" is made up of ten individual punctuation blocks measuring between 1 1/4" and 4" tall. There are two hyphens, a full stop, a colon, an exclamation mark, two commas, a question mark, an ampersand and a close quotation mark...what fun!

Total width when sitting together = 6 1/4".

The blocks are not attached to each other in any way.
