When There Are No Words
Published by Random House
Although human beings have learned to communicate with each other through the complex structure of language, it is without words that we often speak most clearly about what is true in our hearts.
When There Are No Words explores the significant ways in which we can relate to each other without words. It is a playful reminder of the power that lives in subtle gestures, passionate embraces, and the wink of an eye; it is a celebration of the human connection, for it reveals how actions make us understood and help us to understand others.
Inventive and masterfully crafted, When There Are No Words encourages touch through its magnetic cover that inspires readers to "connect" with the book. Ten magnetic pieces are placed on the cover-the five words of the title and five images-so that readers can literally take away the words and build their own word and image scenarios. The book also contains many other special interactive features, including: diecut pages; a clock with spinning hands; a gatefold; a globe that turns; and a pocket for magnet storage. Particularly during these times when the need to communicate may be more urgent, but more difficult, this wonderful volume is an exceptional year-round token of love that expresses caring when words are simply not enough.
