The Macmillan Visual Dictionary.

Unlike any dictionary you've ever seen, this unique and extraordinary reference book epitomizes the potential of visual communications. More than twenty-five thousand terms are identified by the use of thousands of detailed illustrations. Twenty-eight chapters provide skillfully painted, multiple images of subject areas that include: The Human Body, The Animal Kingdom, Music, Architecture, The House, Communications, Symbols, etc. Each chapter is broken down into numerous sections. For example, Architecture has pages with labelled paintings of castles, office buildings, roofs, cathedrals, architectural styles, and nine other categories. Strongly recommended for personal and/or professional purposes.
