Idea & Concept, Cover page, Illustration
Nearly forgotten words and their myterious provenance.
Papperlapapp, Larifari, Kladderadatsch and Brimborium – to name but a few of the charmingly old-fashioned, sometimes onomatopoetic, sometimes humorous, always memorable words. But where do they come from? For every one of them there are four seemingly scientific answers. Only one of them however is true, while the rest of them – are humbug.
