“An eye for un ail” by Illustrator Julien Posture

A fun project by Montréal-based illustrator Julien Posture (previously featured here). “An eye for un ail” is a series of illustrations for a children’s book based on cross-language homophones between French and English. Featuring two words that sound the same yet have different meanings, Posture’s illustrations act as a kind of glue, allowing for surprising linkages across languages:

“Children learning a new language tend to be really playful with the sounds they learn and how going from one language to another can be a source of fun and experimentation. This series aims at kindling this instinct and embracing the playfulness of languages.”
