Don’t want to spend weeks learning any of the language from a country you’re going to visit? No problem. If you have to ask directions from people who speak other language you may use the Traveler’s Phrasebook T-shirt, created by Art Lebedev Studio. This t-shirt has a set of international pictograms depicting most of critical services that tourists need, besides a railway station and a car rental probably. Pointing at a corresponding picture in the t-shirt you may ask a passer-by the necessary direction.
Looking for a bank or a good cafe? Just point at the t-shirt. Want to get to the airport? Just show the plane on the Traveler’s Phrasebook T-shirt to the driver. But girls should be careful with their gestures. There is a large question mark in the center, which can also be used to explain you’re asking a question. It’s hard to find a quicker and simpler way to communicate with people from any part of the world.
The Traveler’s Phrasebook T-shirt is produced in Turkey (the shirt itself) and Russia (print). You can get it for $20 or €14 in the Art Lebedev store. It’s available in black and orange colors.
