The Book of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks: A Celebration of Creative Punctuation by Bethany Keeley

Some blogs really make better blogs than books. This book/blog is a perfect example. It's probably entertaining to look at one or two of these every morning while you're trying to muster the ambition to do actual "work." But unless you have the patience and restraint to read only a couple pages of the book each day, it quickly becomes overwhelming and somewhat repetitive. I mean, even with different words in each photo, it's really just the same "joke" over and over.

I don't have a photo to go with it, but one of my favorite examples of unnecessary quotation marks here in Chicago is written on a hardware store window on Lawrence Avenue:
PARKING "IN REAR"
Yeah buddy, I'll tell you where you can park it...
