In the fifteenth century, the Carolingian script was revived by the Italian humanists. The book closes with History, a section organized as a time-line spanning years of design in America.
Such marks are thought to have been cues for reading aloud. Thus punctuation came to be defined architecturally rather than orally. The main essay I have focussed on is A Punctuated History which takes me through a brief history of punctuation. It functioned variously as a pointer or separator.
For example, often a preposition was linked to another word. If the change originates with the designer, the designer is responsible. Such marks have been used since the middle ages for citing passages and keying marginal references. The system of Aristophanes was rarely used by the Greeks, but it was revived by the Latin grammarian Donatus in the fourth century AD.
The rise of printing encouraged the use of space to organize texts. A thin diagonal slash, called a virgule, was sometimes used like a comma in medieval manuscripts and early printed books. Realizing the potential for an expanded critical discourse in graphic design provoked a shift in her ambitions.
The authors of this new edition, now published for the first time in paperback, have fuelled great interest in the theoretical aspects of design and prompted innovation in design practice.
Lupton earned access to broader audiences and larger-scale projects inwhen she became the contemporary design curator at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, one of the few existing design curatorships in the country.
Although structure is the strongest rationale today, punctuation remains a largely intuitive art. Design It Yourself, a manual for empowering non-designers with how-to skills.
A gap in the printed page feels more deliberate than a gap in a manuscript because it is made by a slug of lead rather than a flux in handwriting.

A writer can often choose among several correct ways to punctuate a passage, each with a slightly different rhythm and meaning. A section on Media looks at the role of design in mass communications with erudite essays on stock photography, visual journalism, illustration, advertising and vernacular design cultures.
A Carolingian manuscript sometimes marked the beginning of a sentence with an enlarged letter. Some later writers modified the theories of Do- natus, returning to a rhetorical approach to punctuation, in which the marks served to control rhythm and emphasis.
Since the rise of digital production, printed texts have become more visually elaborate — typographic variations are now routinely available to writers and designers. Many of the pauses in rhetorical delivery, however, naturally correspond with grammatical structure: During the seventh and eighth centuries new marks appeared in some manuscripts, including the semicolon, the inverted semicolon, and a question mark that ran horizontally.
The invention of printing made more elaborate and precise referencing possible because the pages of a text were consistent from one copy to the next.
A mark called capitulum was introduced in early Latin manu- scripts. It also preserved the visual density of the page, which emulated the continuous unbroken flow of speech.
The Art of the Title Sequencewith clips. Her writing is smart, but more importantly, it entertains, too. This book draws on over ten years of design, writing and research. Curatorial work came naturally as an extension of writing and design.
For example the terms comma, colon, and periodos, as they were used by Aristophanes, come from the theory of rhetoric, where they refer to rhythmical units of speech.
