Artist and writer Eunsan Huh has created a wonderful pictorial series entitled “Every Single Word in Icelandic“, an illustrated guide to the fascinating Icelandic language and culture, one deconstructed word at a time.

Every Single Word In Icelandic is a pictographic exploration of the Icelandic language. I find an interesting compound word, then deconstruct and illustrate it as icons. The goal is to express how Icelandic can be deadpan literal and unexpectedly poetic at the same time.
