I think it was ~1989 when I first saw a review of a similar item — a laminated folding sheet of ~400 icons (not photos) to represent many things you’d need to say or ask while traveling in foreign countries.
Made me think of Koko the Gorilla. I was surprised that it didn’t catch on. But apparently the concept is still well and alive oggi.

One time at an Odyssey of the Mind after-event dinner, for some reason we started going around the table (15-20 people) with each person saying “Thank you” in a different language. I think we made it all the way around. My contribution was modern Greek /ef-kar-ee-sto/.
