Abstract:

Artist's book. "The Greenlandic language - famous for its many words for snow - expresses the Arctic ecosystem better than the writings of any climate scientist. It is indispensible for our understanding of the environment, yet UNESCO declares it to be in danger of extinction. How to Say 'I Love You' in Greenlandic is an introduction to this evocative Arctic language, and presents a romantic narrative as well as a lesson in linguistics. All 12 letters of the Greenlandic alphabet are represented ... These words and their English definitions are accompanied by a series of pochoir prints depicting icebergs."--Artist's website.
