Literary Swag

Have you seen these new posters that have just the punctuation from literary classics?

“Between the Words is an exploration of visual rhythm of punctuation in well-known literary works. All letters, numbers, spaces, and line breaks were removed from entire texts of classic stories like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Moby Dick, and Pride and Prejudice—leaving only the punctuation in one continuous line of symbols in the order they appear in texts. The remaining punctuation was arranged in a spiral starting at the top center with markings for each chapter and classic illustrations at the center.” -Between the Words Website

I find the art works mesmerizing and beautiful.  What do you think?  The newest must-have for the home library or just a bunch of dots?
