The Pocket Visual Dictionary is a completely new kind of reference book. It provides a link between pictures and words in a way that no other dictionary ever has. Most dictionaries simply tell you what a word means, but the Pocket Visual Dictionary shows you - through a combination of detailed annotations, explicit photographs, and illustrations. The pictures define the annotations around them, you do not read the definitions of the annotated words, you see them.
This highly accessible format, the thoroughness of its annotations, and the range of its subject matter make The Pocket Visual Dictionary a unique and handy reference tool for all the family to refer to again and again.
