A new image-based dictionary bearing Google's name created by two London-based artists, Ben West and Felix Heyes, consists of 1,240 page book containing 21,000 visual definitions.

"We used two PHP scripts my brother Sam wrote for us," Ben West told CreativeApplications.Net. "The first one takes a text list of dictionary words and downloads each image in sequence, and the second lays them out into columns and outputs a PDF."

The PDF was then printed into a beautiful book - handbound, thumb indexed pages held together in a marbled paper hardcover, the golden Google logo clearly indifferent to whatever Internet horrors it may contain.
