Contains a fantastical alphabet for the dictionary’s divider pages, designed by the Polish graphic artist Roman Cieslewicz. The book’s antiquated Gothic atmosphere is full of hundreds of dark and disquieting 19th-century engravings steeped in superstition, morbid folklore and an oppressive sense of dread. There are looming spires and towers, ruined castles, grinning devils, giants, witches, flying chariots, nocturnal apparitions, writhing serpents, vampire bats, succubi, levitating skeletons, dancing crabs, a three-headed demon riding a snake, and the mysterious menhirs of Carnac.
