This is a very clever and thought provoking book. The author has a wonderful imagination when considering words as images. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with rendering on the Kindle. Words like exit, robbery, stock market, equador, and others are not rendered correctly. This is a big disappointment which hopefully will be fixed as these should simply be images.

Some words do not show on either my ipad or kindle. E.g. p145, quit, X-ray do not show. This is such a great book - this is a big disappointment - now do I buy the physical book?

It's little more than a collection of clever word-puns, but I and my family enjoyed it thoroughly. My kids really appreciated the section at the end of the book that suggests ways of creating your own word-images. it's not great literature, just what it says on the cover-- "Word as Image"

If you like art and coffee-table worthy books, then this will make a great addition to your library (electronic or physical!). This also became an inspirational book for me as I have started becoming more "artsy" when it comes to sending cards and letters. Overall, I love this book!

Brilliant --
A consistently clever set of words that also function as word defining images. I expected some winners; but almost all are winners.
