Other-Wordly

words both strange and lovely from around the world


Discover words to surprise, delight and enamor. Learn terms for the sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees, for dancing awkwardly but with relish, and for the look shared by two people who each wish the other would speak first. Other-Wordly is an irresistible gift for lovers of words and those lost for words alike.

About the Author(s)
Yee-Lum Mak and Kelsey Garrity-Riley

As a kid, Yee-Lum Mak loved long words best, but she's since learned that lovely words come in many shapes. This book is from a tumblr of the same name, begun while the author was in high school. She lives in Los Angeles.

Kelsey Garrity-Riley grew up in Belgium and Germany before moving to the United States to study illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She and her husband now call Brooklyn, New York home.

Reviews
"A gem of a book that has captured weird and wonderful words from across the globe, illustrated with the most beautiful drawings in muted autumn and winter colours that make this an especially apt gift for this time of the year."Page to Stage Reviews
