when choosing images for the word pages, i want them to be (in rough order of importance):

  • horizontal - to avoid making the box too tall
  • concrete - object > symbol (e.g. for tonsi i changed the nonbinary flag to a nonbinary person holding one), photo > illustration
    • an exception is unpa, where to avoid it being too adult i went for a somewhat-abstract solid-color pictogram
  • comprehensive - covering as much of the semantic space as possible, ideally without stitching multiple images together
  • good-looking - no blur, no overly high contrast, ideally no stock photo vibes
  • distraction-free - no other objects or text
  • woke - avoid cis white men unless necessary (i plan to use photos of trans people for meli and mije, largely to make the point that it's about gender and not sex)
