Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Don’t lie. You’re scripturient, aren’t you!?


Here’s a collection of wonderful posters by a pair of Irish illustrators, depicting unusual words. If you don’t know what scripturient means, maybe you can guess from the picture that it’s “possessing a violent desire to write.”

Other words on the list?

Recumbentibus, acersecomic, harmartia, jettatura, pogonotrophy, ostentiferious, ultracrepidarian, zugzwang, and yonderly.

Purchase these apt images from The Project Twins, out of Cork, Ireland (€160).
