Words and pictures for getting back in touch with your heart: a hit in Italy, now widely available in book form for the first time.

Money can be measured; life cannot.
To measure the unmeasurable, you need a scale inside your soul that isn’t marked.

——Shuntaro Tanikawa

The warmth of emotion, the closeness of a loved one, the weight of hopes and wishes: so many things in life cannot be gauged in numbers, though we can surely feel their power. Taking time out to try to measure those unmeasurable things means inching just a bit closer to their essence―do it, and you might even come to look on people and the past with a little more affection and gain a little more positive outlook on life. This collection of forty-nine unmeasurables in humorous words and pictures will gently gladden your heart when you’re feeling down and will make a wonderful gift, too!

Ayumi Kudo was born in 1980 in Okayama Prefecture and graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara in 2010. In 2012 she received second place in the Premio San Fedele and was also selected to participate in the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Illustrators’ Exhibition. She is now based in Europe.
