Noun

Book artist and printmaker Yuka Petz created this fun book of mix and match words. By flipping the each side of the book, you can create a new nouns with crazy new meanings. Yuka started with 27 real English words and their definitions but then divided into two parts. Each time one side of the book is flipped, the word and definition changes. There are so many variations and many of them seem like they might be real words. Some funny examples are: muffin + tyrant = muffrant: A quick bread made of batter unrestrained by law or constitution, or whisper + umbrella = whisbrella: A low sibilant utterance for sheltering one from rain and sun.
