The Dead Words Project

The Dead Words is a great project by Karen To in which she, as well as other designers that she invites, reinterprets and rediscovers the meaning of dead words through a variety of styles of lettering. The words she chooses are words that had once been used in the English language but have now fallen out of our every day lexicon and are often omitted from common English dictionaries. By using illustrative lettering like this, Karen is able to weave a story around the meanings of the words in a playful and insightful way.
