Homographs (English) is the first volume of “Uses and Names”, a visual dictionaries series. Words are selected that have at least two different referents in the world and are laid out on a spread to emphasise the narrowness of language with respect to the width of the world. So, a cataract is at once an eye disease and a waterfall. A bat is an animal and the tool used in baseball. Basket is a woven item and a sport. Bark is the verse of dogs and the outermost layer of tree trunks.
