Books Info:

Words Fail Me free pdf In this quirky new title designer and typographer Teresa Monachino rounds up and breaks down a variety of unruly words: words lacking in integrity, misleading words that do not mean what they say, words that mean more than they say, words with inconsistent pronunciation or spellings that are just plain cruel! Using striking and witty graphic design the author demands answers to such troublesome questions as, why is abbreviation such a long word, does monosyllabic really need five syllables and why is lisp so hard to say if you have one?

About Teresa Monachino

Teresa Monachino (b.1968) is an award-winning graphic designer and typographer based in London. Her passion for wordplay comes from her Italian mother's hesitant grasp of the English language. For many years Teresa has attempted to explain to her mother why the word she has chosen is incorrect, only to be baffled by the peculiarity and lack of logic in English herself
