Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 145363634X, Paperback)A compendium of over 100 odd & obscure words illustrated in P. M. Law's distinctive bricolage "paper-dolls" style. Employing visual puns, verbal puns, mythological references and a quirky, smart, sense of humor, Ms. Law explores and illuminates the fringes and snickleways of the English language. Is it a dictionary, an art book, a language book or a reference book? Yes. "Polly M. Law has set such a stunning standard for mixing beauty and language that other dictionaries are now doorstops. What I wouldn't give to see illustrations like these in an unabridged edition!" - Grant Barrett, author & host of NPR's "A Way With Words" "Polly M. Law has taken a gallimaufry of unusual words and brought them cleverly, amusingly, charmingly to life with her pulchritudinous artwork. A simple idea beautifully realized." -Patrick Merrell, artist/author of "Bird Brainteasers"
