Everyday Thingsby DK Publishing, Dorling Kindersley Publishing Staff
Here is an entirely new kind of dictionary one that is packed iwth vivid photogrpahs and thousands of names for the components that make up familiar objects. The Visual Dictionary of Everyday Things will give you instant access to the specialist vocabulary used in furniture making, clock making, tailoring, bookbinding, and manufacturing a multitude of everyday objects. If you know what an object looks like but don't know its name, then turn to the labels around the illustrations. If you know a word but don't know what it refers to,k then the comprehensive index will direct you to the illustration that bears the name. Each subject is depicted whole in a full-color photograph or illustrations. Then it is taken apart or "exploded" and each component is identified with carefully researched labels.
This volume forms part of a series that, like the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Books, builds thematically into a comprehensive and exquisitely illustrated treasure trove of words and pictures providing high-quality information for readers of all ages.
