Did you know that the Japanese have a word to express the way sunlight filters through tree leaves? Or that there's a Swedish word that means a traveller's particular sense of anticipation before a trip? With words and definitions that range from the lovely to the funny to the surprising, LOST IN TRANSLATION brings the nuanced beauty of language to life with fifty beautiful ink illustrations.
A gorgeous illustrated compendium of untranslatable words from around the world.
