Yep. Just the punctuation.


Nicholas Rougeux is someone who is intrigued with making data visual. He also is intrigued with discovering data where we thought there was none. His Between the Words project takes classic pieces of literature in the public domain, removes all the words and the spaces between them, leaveing only the punctuation. In his own words, “Between the Words is an exploration of visual rhythm of punctuation in well-known literary works.” Starting at the top center, he spirals the punctuation, in the order it appears in the book, moving toward the center. He has done this with Moby Dick, Peter Pan, A Christmas Carol, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Pride and Prejudice, and, of course, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You can even buy a poster of one of his masterful creations.
