What happens when words and pictures coexist, bump into one another, are in constant conversations? How might words paint a bird, while that very bird sings the words themselves? This book invites readers to participate in a vibrant celebration of language itself.

With surrealist paintings bursting with words, bright colors, and unexpected juxtapositions, this book explores how playing with a word’s sound, form, and context can shape its meaning. Each painting asks a question, which can be answered with the words and pictures that make up the image, or with the reader’s own words. Playfully expressive, this celebration of the imagination will give its readers a newfound appreciation for the richness, beauty, and vitality of language.
