Printers and Puncuation


My father was a real printer and why punctuation is important to printers, is that apostrophies, commas and full-stops can easily be mistaken. So you had to be careful.

I used to know a lot of the slang for various punctuation. For instance an exclamation mark is known as a shriek.

Ah! Those were the days of emms, reglets, quoins and chaises.
