I came across this incredible video via We Love You So, the Spike Jonze/WTWTA production blog. It chronicles all of the production work and great inspiration behind the Pictorial Webster’s project. Someone’s gotta get me one for Christmas! I used to love looking at old dictionary engravings in antiquarian books when I was in design school.
