About Ultimate Visual Dictionary

Ultimate Visual Dictionary is a comprehensive, annotated visual dictionary of more than 33,000 commonly researched places and things, from the origins of the universe to modern technology.

Organized into 14 major sections including Animals, Rail and Road, Music, and more, each has its own table of contents, enabling readers to find a pictorial definition of an object without necessarily knowing its name in advance. Can't remember the name of a kangaroo's pouch? Just flip to the "Marsupials & Monotremes" spread in Ultimate Visual Dictionary and find out. Or, turn the pages to discover the different components of the human body, identify the parts of a tractor, or figure out tricky sports terms.

Stunning color photography and detailed cutaway illustrations bring complex subjects to life, alongside straightforward explanations of basic principles and ideas. With this revised edition of DK'sUltimate Visual Dictionary, readers will never again be at a loss for words.
