A Dictionary You Should Not Be Without
I have an addiction – an addiction to dictionaries. The more I write, the more dictionaries pile up on my shelves.
This is how it is for most writers … and I’m sure it is for you, too.
Not long ago, I picked up a dictionary that I look at almost daily. It’s called The Ultimate Visual Dictionary, and it’s well worth the purchase price just for the pretty pictures.
But that’s not why I’m recommending it.
In doing your research, you’ll come across descriptions that are almost enough. If only you could see a picture … This is where The Ultimate Visual Dictionary comes in. It shows you the pictures.
Here’s what Amazon.com has to say:
“With a broad scope that covers topics as far-reaching as tempura paint, chemical reactions, and the equestrian saddle, this book manages to attain an inclusiveness that will bring a smile to the faces of even the most die-hard researchers. But though its topical range is amazing, The Ultimate Visual Dictionary’s real attraction is ultimately its illustrations; containing more than 5,000 photographs and 1,000 detailed visuals connected to 30,000 terms, it provides a link between words and pictures in a way that few other books can or do.”
Available in both hardback and paperback for around $30 new at Amazon, here are the important details:
