Nerd Christmas came the other day when a strange package arrived at my door from the sweet folks at Chronicle Books. Inside the discrete brown wrapper was a copy of the just-released Pictorial Webster’s Pocket Dictionary. Collecting over 500 of the best engravings from the original Pictorial Webster’s, this pleasing little tome will happily accompany and inspire you wherever you go. Upon initial inspection, this will fit in a gentleman’s coat pocket with ease, perhaps also in a laptop case or in your brown paper lunch bag.
Also worth mentioning is the Coccyx section at the end of the book, which describes a mysterious code hidden within and throughout the book. Pick up your copy and crack the code!
