We’re gearing up for the release of a book we’re really, really excited for - Unterzakhn, an original graphic novel by the incomparable Leela Corman. We’re so excited, in fact, that we couldn’t wait until the book comes out on Tuesday (4/3) to start sharing some of the striking visuals from it. We’re especially fond of this panel, which highlights the (pretty but, ouch, uncomfortable) undergarments from the book’s turn-of-the-last-century setting.
It’s also apropos because “unterzakhn” is Yiddish for “underthings.” If you didn’t already know that, you’re definitely going to want to stick around the Pantheon Tumblr this week, because we’re gonna teach you some fun Yiddish words that range from useful to, er, less acceptable in most social situations (but still fun to say!).
