Illustration: Untranslatable words

design, ilustration

Siesta is a spanish word and you all know what it means, appearing in most dictionaires around the world. But there are some words, like Schadenfraude in German that don’t have a direct translation in any language. This is what has probably inspired Irish illustrator Fuchsia Macaree to create this Untranslatable Dictonary Illustration.

I believe it’s a “Renao”!


I’ve made some A2 posters of the A-Z which are for sale in my shop!

I also have one A0 print (mounted and on archival somerset paper) of the
A-Z for sale - it was made for my degree show but I’m moving back to
Ireland in a few weeks so if anyone in London would like it, do get in contact! 



See all the illustations.
