In The Land of Punctuation

I treated myself to a new book this week. It’s a typographic illustrated poem about punctuation, originally written in German by Christian Morgenstern. The poem is translated by Sirish Rao and illustrated by designer Rathna Ramanathan.

The peaceful land of Punctuation
is filled with tension overnight

When the stops and commas of the nation 
call the semi-colons ‘parasites’
