Pictorial Webster’s: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities

“As soon as this thing showed up on our shelves I had already announced to no one in particular that I had to have it. Everyone needs a bizarre collection of restored Victorian engravings, lovingly compiled and bound into a beautiful hardcover book. Did you forget, again, how many spines are on an acanthopterygian perch? Count them on page 3. There’s also a glossary in the back which succinctly defines ‘MULLET’ as ‘Haircut of genius.’ For the offbeat bibliophile and art-lover in your life, this book will provide hours of entertainment.”
