The Shapetionary

Rachel and I went out for coffee the other night with our friend Margaret Flood. Rachel's known Margaret since they were wee and Margaret and I collaborated on a broadside a few years ago--which is to say I gave Margaret a sheaf of poems, she picked one and did a gorgeous interpretation of it, printed using lithographic and intaglio techniques.

She's now moved on to bigger things. Huge things, which she told us about over coffee and cake. Her current project is The Shapetionary: An Impractical Reference Book. Basically, she's taken all the concrete object nouns out of the dictionary and is farming them out to people all over the world to be illustrated.

If you're interested in contributing to the Shapetionary, drop Margaret a line:
