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.

 In Rougeux’s posters, every comma, apostrophe, dash, question mark, and exclamation point (or other punctuation mark) used in each work spirals around a small illustration from the book. 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. "

The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought: still it had very long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect. ‘Cheshire Puss,’ she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. ‘Come, it’s pleased so far,’ thought Alice, and she went on. ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’

‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat. 

‘I don’t much care where—’ said Alice. 

‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat. ‘—so long as I get somewhere,’ Alice added as an explanation. ‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.’
