A Picture's Worth One Long, Strange Word

I'm loving Project Twins' A–Z of Unusual Words, in which the Irish designers illustrate unusual words. The collection of prints was shown at the MadArt Gallery in Dublin. What a lovely combination of words, wit, and illustration.

ktenology
The science of putting people to death.




Tarantism
A disorder characterised by an uncontrollable urge to dance.






Yonderly

Acersecomic

Noegenesis
