Don't call me Ishmael... I'm Aitchbee..Sorry folks for the torturous intro...butWhat I would like to know is...what is the correct name for the little blue ink spots that you see on the outside of very big dictionaries?The one(s) I have got in front of me is 'The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary Thumb Index Edition (2 Books) (3,800 pages)(ps.I looked up esoteric and pedantic..and torturous).
No - they resemble little ink spots that sometimes you see on wild birds' eggshells. Obviousley they were printed on the outside of the dictionary (or spray-painted) or dabbed on by hand.

thanks for your in(k)put.R u upside down at the moment?
I had a look on google images, but none of them show any "little blue ink spots" on the covers.Can you post a link so we can see what they look like?
This was the fashion about forty five years ago.Young boys used to collect wild birds' eggs.Blow out the yolks and keep the empty shells.I don't think this happens now as all the young folk are more interested in computer games.etc.
no can do
Blow out the yolks and keep the empty shells.I don't think this happens now as all the young folk are more interested in computer games.etc."Actually it's because collecting birds eggs is illegal now.
Sorry lotvic - I think this may be something that is best described in words.
Yes it was illegal 45 years ago as well.
