Every Word in Dictionary Represented as Google Image Search

July 11, 2012

… the artists took an average dictionary and replaced every word (approx  21K words) with the first Google Image result for that particular word. Designers Ben West and Felix Heyes explain: “The first (PHP script) takes a text list of dictionary words and downloads each image in sequence. The second script lays them out into columns and outputs a PDF.”

The result is a 1,240-page pic-tionary.
