L’Invention du dictionnaire, by Frédéric Marais and Jean Lecointre
To celebrate the 419th anniversary of the creation of the dictionary, Marais and Lecointre tell us about its origins…
At the dawn of the world, the Earth was delivered to its inhabitants with thick instructions for use, including definitions and descriptions for all the existing things in this world. But when a mad pig gobbled the documents, the inhabitants became lost and confused. Nothing made sense any more, one mixed up bathroom with dining room, front and back: it was total chaos! The inhabitants came with the idea of sharing their knowledge so as to order this chaos. And so was created the dictionary!
To celebrate the 419th anniversary of its creation, Frédéric Marais and Jean Lecointre sign here a totally crazy and extremely funny project, with very modern graphic design.
