The Visual Dictionary is the ultimate finder's guide to naming of parts, providing easy access to the specialist vocabulary of a wide range of subjects. Using a unique visual approach, it enables readers to find a pictorial definition of an object without necessarily knowing its name in advance.
Conventional alphabetical access to definitions is also possible through the book's comprehensive index. Immense in scope, the dictionary is divided into 14 major sections covering all aspects of the natural and man-made world, including plants and animals, the human body, transport, the visual arts, music and technology. Careful structuring of each section and meticulous labelling of illustrations contribute to a comprehensive and authoritative dictionary.
Explanatory text and images (how a four-stroke engine works, for example) provide the reader with encyclopaedic information in addition to the dictionary, giving a real understanding of even the most complex subjects.
