The Dictionary of
Obscure Sorrows

A compendium of invented words written by John Koenig, that aims to fill holes in the language — to give a name to emotions we all feel but don't have a word for.


Animations bring clarity to the words and add to the storytelling; They are supporting actions that visualize the abstract ideas.
