An artistic collection of more than 50 drawings featuring unique, funny, and poignant foreign words that have no direct translation into English. Did you know that the Japanese language has a word toexpress the way sunlight filters through the leaves of trees? Or that there s a Finnish word for the distance a reindeercan travel before needing to rest?"Lost in Translation" brings to life more than fifty words thatdon t have direct English translations with charming illustrationsof their tender, poignant, and humorous definitions. Oftenthese words provide insight into the cultures they come from, such as the Brazilian Portuguese word for running your fingers through a lover s hair, the Italian word for being moved to tears by a story, or the Swedish word for a third cup of coffee. In this clever and beautifully rendered exploration of thesubtleties of communication, you ll find new ways to express yourself while getting lost in the artistry of imperfect translation."
