I love this hand-drawn map of Indo-European languages. Created by the Finnish-Swedish designer and author behind the web-comic StandStillStaySilent, this is a beautiful visualisation of how the languages relate to each other.
I like how the Celtic branch hangs, slightly randomly, below Albanian, but it’s a little strange that Gaelic is listed as one language, no differentiation between Scots-Gaelic and Irish (the other Scots is included close to English, being a variation of it).
Also very interesting to consider that Arabic and Hebrew, and variations thereof, are not part of this family tree but comprise their own.
