The Dictionary of Google Images, 2013 Edition

January 15, 2013 | Andy Cush

File this under “things I must have immediately”: the Oxford Pocket Dictionary, translated into Internet–that is to say, with every word’s definition replaced with the first Google Images search result. Each entry is presented without context or commentary; what results is a free-associative, kaleidoscopic tour through the consciousness of the web, all wrapped in a beautifully bound hardcover book. The first edition came in 2012 (that’s where the above images came from), but designers Ben West and Felix Heyes say that if demand is high enough, they’ll print a new edition each year, to match the constantly mutating nature of the internet.
