Homophones Visualized


Homophones Visualized is a witty book that illustrates homophones—words that sound alike, but are spelled differently and have completely different meanings.

This book uses clever and minimalist graphics to help illustrate the differences between 100 pairs (or triplets or quadruplets) of words that sound alike.

From beat and beet to flee and flea, baron and barren to golf and gulf, each spread contains a pair or group of homophones and corresponding illustrations that provide context for each word.

• Illustrations are simple, smart, and humorous
• Worden's work has been featured by BoingBoing, Bored Panda, and My Modern Met
