You know what’s better than waffles? Nothing. Except maybe waffles that have your own custom-made patterns on it!

Footloose writer and illustrator Ella Frances Sanders has lived all over the world, so it was rather fitting that she somehow found a way to translate over 50 words without a direct English translation, in the form of charming illustrations for her book Untranslatable. These are so twee and so fun.
What are the police like in your country? Testosterone-fuelled gun-wielding maniacs, corrupt as the day is long or apathetic cynics with little to do other than stop you riding your bike on the sidewalk?

Haha! This is perfect for us all who’ve ever dreamt of being a rock star, but never got to it, no thanks to, you know, a normal life and all that. Ryan Hanrahan and Bianca Riggio, the creative couple of design company Page Thirty Three, came up with this off-kilter design for a fly swatter.
