Roy’s Apostrophes


Roy’s Apostrophes is a punning collision of punctuation and exclamation.

Oh, cruel retailers! Why must you misuse the English language so?

Roy’s Apostrophes is an ongoing project in which my obsessively punctuation-conscious father can correct the mis-punctuations of shop fronts with a custom made apostrophe inserter whilst out and about.

Roy’s borderline psychotic obsession with correct punctuation has informed my own interest in language, almost through force. I am nonetheless grateful.

The image shows an artist’s impression of Roy’s Apostrophes in action.

Unfortunately, the Internet is not sympathetic to the title of this project – I am aware that the apostrophe in the extension of this web address is mockingly absent!
