My friend Julie gave me John Langdon's Wordplay for Christmas a few years ago, and it's one of my favorite books to peruse.

I love words. I love wordplays and puns and word puzzles and creative use of language. John Langdon's word art brings in all of these, as well as the artistic sense of the word.

Langdon's book brings in another aspect of his word art: philosophy. Philosophy within vocabulary and art and science.

This isn't your typical "sit down and escape" type of book, but it is definitely a book for those who want to think about language and art and its impact on our thoughts.
