I like to find film posters or book covers featuring a word that I am learning. Sometimes it is difficult to find anything using Google Image search so I need to improve my search terms.

For example, I'm trying to find an example of the word ennuyeux, used in a film poster or a book title. Usually I search for ennuyeux affiche or ennuyeux livre but this does not always work.

I tried livre avec le mot «ennuyeux» dans le titre with the intended meaning book with the word "ennuyeux" in the title but this is not producing better search results.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can improve my Google Image search?

You really would have more luck using a more specialized website that you can search for titles, like Amazon.fr or IMDB to get examples of that. You're going to find FAR too many examples of books and movies being called boring for any Google search to be useful at all.

In any case, "Ennuyeux" strikes me as a word that is REALLY unlikely to find it's way into a title. I couldn't find it used on Amazon, IMDB, Librarything, Noosfere, Bibliopoche, Bédéthèque.... Even Worldcat gave only a few tiny, ridiculously obscure results.
