Though not quite a replacement for Mountain View’s ill-fated dictionary, this 1,240 page tome contains the first Google image search result for each word in a run-of-the-mill dictionary. With a PHP script, London-based artists Felix Heyes and Ben West scraped the image from each search and compiled an alphabetically ordered PDF brimming with 21,000 images — safesearch-disabled warts and all. “It’s really an unfiltered, uncritical record of the state of human culture in 2012,” West told Creative Applications Network. Alas, the volume isn’t destined for mass distribution — presumably to avoid copyright issues — but the pair is considering sending a small batch of soft cover copies to print.
