The Visual Dictionary is a community-built online compendium of words as they appear in the real world. With apparently hundreds of words already submitted, the site is rich with interesting photos and folk typography. Wondering why? Site founder Matthew Knight admits it just looks cool, but adds, "in time, once the dictionary has more words, there could be plenty of applications for the content, perhaps creating 'ransom note' style emails using images from the dictionary, delivering a word of the day, converting your text into images as you type - the ideas are unlimited."
