I have an idea for an art project that would take YEARS and need to be done by someone really talented, but what if you illustrated EVERY PAGE of a dictionary? Just chose your favorite word on that page and illustrated it? Or maybe every other page because color and writing and just pressure would mess up the design on the back of the page. Then you could have a match set, of two same issue dictionaries with one illustrated on the left and one on the right pages, and then you could still look up all the words between them.
…THAT IS THE BEST IDEA EVER.
