I have been working on “illustrating/illuminating” a dictionary for several years now. She is a mammoth unabridged 1957 Mirriam-Webster. I bought her off of E-bay for a couple of bucks. It cost more to ship her than to buy her!

Originally, my intent was to add pictures for particular entries. Then I noticed that the top of every page had the first and last entry listed. It created some wonderful juxtapositions; Grenade Granny, Nunnery Nutrition, Magically Magnetic, Creation Creek, etc. I started using these prompts as a jumping off point.

This is a more recent one.
