Von Abgängling bis Zosse – Eine illustrierte Auflistung 100 (nahezu) ausgestorbener Wörter
“Josefsehe”, “langer Laban”, “Pfühl” and “Quarre” – this delicately designed dictionary explains the meaning of German words that have nearly disappeared from the general, active vocabulary. These words and their modern translations are listed on 100 double-page spreads. The book does completely without complicated etymological explanations. Instead, each term is complemented by a unique illustration, lending the dictionary the appeal of an entertaining and inspiring art book that makes the allegedly dead words come to life again.
