A book featuring 100 icons of Nordic cool & Scandinavian style
You’ve watched every Scandi TV series going, you have Nordic light fittings, and you want Birgitte Nyborg as your Prime Minister. Yes it’s fair to say there is a general love-in with everything related to the northern countries.
Over the last decade, the Nordic nations have quietly and unassumingly come to hold us in their thrall; but what is it, exactly, that we covet about their culture?
Nordicana celebrates the objects, aesthetics and traditions that have inspired our obsession, with a quick introduction to 100 icons of Scandi style and Nordic cool, accompanied by beautiful illustrations.
Whether it is the inimitable Faroe Isles jumper, made famous by TV detective Sarah Lund; the unusual-tasting delicacy salted liquorice; the ubiquitous Swedish Dala horse; the concept of ‘hygge’ (a feeling evoked by being in candlelit warmth with friends during winter); Midsomer seasonal celebrations; practical but breathtakingly stylish interiors; or an enduring love of noir literature and dramas, you’ll find the key to attaining the Nordic way of life in these pages.
