ACHUKA Book of the Day 17 Aug 2021

What does it mean to ‘comb the giraffe’ in France or to ‘wear a cat on your head’ in Japan? This beautifully illustrated and witty collection of curious phrases from around the world is a voyage of cultural discovery and a treasure trove of fascinating facts.
The illustrator Manu Montoya grew up in Colombia, where she took courses in Graphic Design and Advertising before moving to Barcelona (where she is still based) to study Art Direction.
