there is an incredible book soon to be published by Simon & Schuster Australia called The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows
The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a compendium of #InventedWords written by a freelance designer from Minnesota currently living with his wife in Amsterdam #JohnKoenig . Each original word and its definition aims to fill a hole in the language-to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don't yet have a word for.
http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/ The author has a ferocious curiosity about the art and science of being human, especially language, mythology, poetry, and the natural world. His dictionary has been acclaimed by New York Magazine, Washington Post Express, author John Green, blogger Jason Kottke, and the guys from Radiolab Podcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26JK_Xw_laQ
what I have in mind with all my love and hate for words: John's thoughts are very good for the artistic inspiration. the word for this month is #Lutalica

ANNOUNCING COMPETITION on the best high fashion/avant garde style photograph or set of photographs that will fit into the category "Lutalica". The photos should be artistic, new and striking. We publish the best photos in our magazine to share with our readers.
The due date for submission is 18 March 1200pm. The works should be sent in the form of an attachment or a dropbox link with the full list of credits to accompany it to email@example.com . Your photos should be a work of art in fashion - each image though should like it could be a part of a collective story. I would also like to hear your story of inspiration - please make it 2-3 sentences short and sweet.
This first small step will be our "rose trial grounds" for the future bigger step.
