    Do you perhaps mean a "pictograph"?

    Re: Question

    Thanks but no thats not what I'm looking for. I want to know if you took the word "round" and some one would draw the word "round" in the shape of a circle.

    Re: Question

    Do you mean a concrete, or shape, poem?

    Concrete poem - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Concrete poem

    I thought these had a fancier name, but apparently not.

    Are you sure there is such a word?

    Re: Question

    Maybe it could be a "label" - like in those books for small children where there is a drawing of an object with the name of the object written inside.
