A couple questions: [1] There was a word.a.day word meaning "having long straight hair". I thought the word was "lissatricious" (sp???) but can't find that reference. Anyone know what it is?

[2] Also - there is an artist / caliglapher who makes words that are written and read both forward, backward and circularly and has a book. Anyone know the author?

email me also, if possible, thanks. steve@designassociates.us

Scott Kim might be the calligrapher you're thinking of, and Wikipedia has a discussion with references (link).

And sometimes one picture is worth a thousand words.
The smiley says it better than I could.
Anyhow my favorite long hair word is still
"floccinaucinihilipilification". Aren't there any others
out there???
