A book project investigating the typographic system which the Irish author James Joyce used in his novel Finnegans Wake. Part pictogram, part letterform, the sigla operate on a number of levels – representing either the initials of character names or concepts such as the four directions of cartographical space and even the book itself. Joyce’s sigla are here contextualised with diagrams and quotations taken from a range of sources including Joyce’s notebooks, letters and the published text.
