What is the term when using a word in an image form such as HUGE in all caps or hill in the form of a hill?

You mean printing something in a way to make it look like the thing it spells? I think I've run across that word, but I couldn't find it when I looked for it in my Word Treasury.

  • Strange new words I relish,
    Like nectar or tonic.
    I now know my line printer
    Is boustrophedonic.

Do you know what a portmanteau word is?

There is a word, but the closest I can come up with now is 'ideographic'. ;-(

I couldn't think of the word, so I tried to change the subject.
