These fun and witty illustrations were created by The Project Twins. Here, the visual and literal intersect as graphic prints teach the meanings of strange and unusual words. For example, the title of the main image above, pogonotrophy, means the act of cultivating or grooming a mustache or beard!

Shown above from left to right:
  • Pogonotrophy: The act of cultivating, or growing and grooming, a mustache, beard, sideburns or other facial hair.
  • Noegenesis: Production of knowledge.
  • Montivagant: Wandering over hills and mountains.
  • Yonderly: Mentally or emotionally distant; absent-minded.
  • Dactylion:  An anatomical landmark located at the tip of the middle finger.
