Description

Have you ever wished there was a word for friends who are like family to you,
or for the way you hesitate when you've forgotten someone's name?
Did you know there was a special word for the distance a reindeer can
travel before needing the toilet? Or for when you search for something
in the water using only your feet?

This hand-picked collection of untranslatable worlds from all over the world
celebrates the magic of language, with gorgeous original artwork and fascinating
facts about each word and the culture it comes from.
