‘Gemel’ is an old English word meaning ‘twin’ – Mark Forsyth’s Gemel Edition brings together a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and its highly anticipated sequel in a beautiful, stylish box set which is ideal as a gift.
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.
--------------Mark Forsyth is the bestselling author of The Etymologicon and The Horologicon, both adapted for BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, read by Hugh Dennis. The success of his books and blog, The Inky Fool (blog.inkyfool.com), has made him one of the UK’s best-known commentators on words. Mark is on Twitter @inkyfool.
