This title 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 illustrations. Over the last decade or so, 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, history and traditions that have inspired our obsession, with a concise introduction to 100 icons of Scandi culture and Nordic cool, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs. Whether it is the inimitable Faroe Isles jumper; the unusual-tasting delicacy salted liquorice; the cult concept of cosy 'hygge'; the nostalgia of Tove Jansson's Moomins; the rituals of Midsummer seasonal celebrations; the romantic tradition of love spoons; or the practical but breathtakingly stylish interiors, you'll find the keys to attaining the Nordic way of life in these pages.
