I had no idea I was going to have such a very good time reading this; i had come accross 'the video version' on you tube, and that was the reason why I ordered the book; I was not disappointed at all......

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic but Kindle Defectve 15 Oct 2011
By Codedancer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very clever and thought provoking book. The author has a wonderful imagination when considering words as images. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with rendering on the Kindle. Words like exit, robbery, stock market, equador, and others are not rendered correctly. This is a big disappointment which hopefully will be fixed as these should simply be images.

2.0 out of 5 stars the kindle version is defective 12 Oct 2011
By alice - Published on Amazon.com

Some words do not show on either my ipad or kindle. E.g. p145, quit, X-ray do not show. This is such a great book - this is a big disappointment - now do I buy the physical book?
4.0 out of 5 stars A book you can judge by its cover 3 April 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's little more than a collection of clever word-puns, but I and my family enjoyed it thoroughly. My kids really appreciated the section at the end of the book that suggests ways of creating your own word-images. it's not great literature, just what it says on the cover-- "Word as Image"

If you like art and coffee-table worthy books, then this will make a great addition to your library (electronic or physical!). This also became an inspirational book for me as I have started becoming more "artsy" when it comes to sending cards and letters. Overall, I love this book!
