apHeidi Neilson is an artist whose 2004 book Atlas of Punctuation includes letterpress prints of the last punctuation marks of every sentence found in 14 famous books, including one by Virginia Woolf.

The punctuation for each book is consolidated on one page of the Atlas of Punctuation, leaving white space where the words would be.

Neilson’s book is just one in about 40 that are part of a new exhibit called “Out of the Incubator” at the Islip Art Museum. The show presents a sampling of artist’s books published during residencies at the Women’s Studio Workshop, according to the New York Times.

The Women’s Studio Workshop is a nonprofit organization founded in 1974 by four female artists in Rosendale, N.Y.
