Worth a Thousand Words
More than just a dictionary, this book is a safari through the worlds of language, history and art. Open it up and explore 1,500 beautiful engravings that graced the pages of Webster's Dictionary in the 19th century. Look up a word for a clear visual depiction of its meaning, or just wander through the detailed images. There's something fascinating to discover on every page.
The engravings are arranged alphabetically, a system of organization long shunned by lexicographers because alphabetical order grants no intrinsic meaning to any given grouping of words, but it is perfect for a book that creates its own immersive experience in imagery of a time gone by.
Created by John M. Carrera, a printer, bookbinder and artist. Hardcover. Made in China.
