This is one of those unique books, it's quite simple but also quite is a work of pure imagination in letters and colors. Just with the tools we have, letters and numbers, there are also a tutorial and examples to play with the words with the innocence we had when children. Ji Lee express so much in a way that almost feels poetic..
Then only thing I would like to improve would be the binding of the book as some images are meant to be read as a two-page spread but it's a bit hard open the pages. But it's a minor issue, it's quite little, portable and fast to read, I warmly can recommend it.
I got such a kick out of this book and had so much fun with it that I'm not sure I can part with it. I might just keep it at my house and entice my daughter back home for a visit - or 30 - to read this book.
I love this book. It's great fun and I admire the creative effort. It's an example of thinking way outside the box. I'm a big fan of all things outside that damned box.
Thanks, Ji Lee.
Not exactly a new idea though, New York designers Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar created a little book in 1959 called 'watching words move' with the same idea but they only using one typeface and size. Their book had examples like sawwww, f1rst, +dd, mamMoth, nO!se, ?uestion (it was republished in 2006 by Chronicle Books ISBN 9780811852142).
Anyone who picks up this book will be intrigued the wordplay and nicely Ji Lee provides a few pages of guidance at the back of the book to kick-start your creative thoughts to do your own ideas.

A consistently clever set of words that also function as word defining images. I expected some winners; but almost all are winners.
Good book to flip through to get thinking creative. Not in best shape, but was used and a good price. Love it.Published on July 25, 2013 by camille
