The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth’s Inky Fool blog about the strange connections between words. The Horologicon – which means ‘a book of things appropriate to each hour’ – follows a day in the life of unusual, beautiful and forgotten English words.
Publication of The Etymologicon in late 2011 shot Mark Forsyth to huge acclaim, appearing on Channel 4, BBC 2 and countless Christmas bestseller lists. Follow Mark on Twitter @inkyfool
