Illustrated Etymology

Illustrated Etymology is an intriguing project by Adam Garcia.

Illustrated Etymology is just that – a collection of visual correlatives to English word history. These illustrations are an exploration, evolution and celebration of the history and meaning of words and language. Each intrepretation is up to the individual artist, but most serve a “descriptive / informative” function, whether abstract, figurative or diagrammatic.
