Emma Block – More Than Just a Word (untranslatable words from around the world)

Another example of art work (see Ella Frances Sanders’s ‘Lost in Translation’) that explores the theme about  words from around the world that have no exact English translation are the beautiful illustrations of Emma Block for the the jewellery house Vashi. This time the main focus is on the subject of love. Visit the site to enjoy all 29 illustrations and share whatever you like.

I have only one linguistic reservation regarding the Greek word “psithirisma” (ψιθύρισμα) which means actually whisper in general, but this by no means affects the work of the illustrator.
