    • The title of this post concerns itself with one of the idiosyncrasies of the typographical process used when setting up the image – ie, it allows an apostrophe to be flipped (as it is here).

      An apostrophe ought always to be shaped somewhat like a 9 – unless you’re dealing with a typographical device or process that employs a short vertical stroke for apostrophes and single speech-marks. This apostrophe is flipped both vertically and horizontally.

      None of which has anything to do with the content of the sign.

  1. Oh dear, sometimes my quotation marks flip (or face the wrong way or something). So far, I’ve just ignored them! Next time I will speak sternly to them. 😉
