Unusual Words — Illustrated!

The Project Twins, a couple of graphic designers from Cork, Ireland, have illustrated twenty-six unusual words, and they look great. You can buy prints here. In the meantime, here are some I really like (click for full size):

Scripturient — Possessing a violent desire to write.

Biblioclasm — The practice of destroying, often ceremoniously, books or other written material and media.

Hamartia — The character flaw or error of a tragic hero that leads to his downfall.
