LOST IN TRANSLATION NOTE CARDS

Untranslatable Words from Around the World

Ella Frances Sanders

12 Different Notecards for Friends and Lovers

Description

Based on the New York Times bestselling book Lost in Translation, this beautifully produced box of note cards and envelopes feature the charming and whimsical illustrated definitions of portmanteau words the author discovered in other languages and cultures around the world.

The words featured on each note card deal with emotions relating to love and friendship to extend the note cards’ use beyond Valentine’s Day. For the lover, killig, in Tagalog, means the feeling of butterflies in your stomach, usually when something romantic or cute takes place. For the friend, in appreciation: nunchi, the subtle, often unnoticed art of listening and gauging another’s mood.
