Lost In Translation

£10.99

This book is a perennial favourite in both of our shops in Edinburgh. It is beautifully illustrated and full of unusual words from lots of languages that defy translation. Did you know the Japanese have a word to express the way that sunlight filters through leaves? Or that there’s a Swedish word for the sense of anticipation you have before a taking a trip? This is a collection full of surprises that will make you savour the wonderful, elusive, untranslatable words which enrich language and experience the world over.

Hardback. 112 fully illustrated pages.
