Yes, it is time for another

Greg Quinton’s suggestion about a follow-up to A Smile in the Mind (Letters, DW 22 October) made me think of another influential book.

Was the The Dictionary of Visual Language, by Philip Thompson and Peter Davenport, a forerunner to A Smile in the Mind? Either way, both have been deeply inspirational on both my work and that of my students. I guess the sales figures will tell the full story.

Even though much of the work is timeless, I believe a follow-up with recent examples would be a treat none of us could resist, particularly in these gloomy times.

To kick-start the next project, why not ask your readers to provide some examples?
