Illustrator Anjana Iyer’s goal is to take words that do not translate word for word into English and illustrate them.

I had to pin the illustration for Fernweh onto Pinterest so that I could find it easily whenever I wanted. I’ve experienced fernweh most of my life for Venice. There’s this little ache in my heart when I look at image of Venice.

But it is really nice to have a word that encapsulates that feeling.
