We’re kicking off an irregular blog series of artists’ illustrations of untranslatable words. If you would like to illustrate an untranslatable word or if you have a favourite untranslatable word, send an email to¬†matthew@structomagazine.co.uk.

First up: Waldeinsamkeit, from the German, which translates as ‘the loneliness of a forest’, and the illustration this time is by US-based artist Marissa Tawney Thaler.
