Using a collection of Grimm’s Fairytales, I chose to illustrate the importance of punctuation as a storytelling system based on intonation and silence. Titled, “Questions? Exclamations! Pauses, and Periods.,” I shifted the hierarchy to punctuation marks to change how stories are told, and it was my goal to allow readers to engage in a connect-the-dot experience in order to re-illustrate the tales.
My drawn copy follows four paths that connect the first and last punctuation marks of each chapter.
