THE BLUE BOX!
Is the imminent winter making you feel blue or perhaps you are feeling blue because of the state of the planet and the human race? Well, then it's time to turn blue into something more enjoyable! Take a look at our handpicked Blue Box of Iceland! Wonderful products from Iceland that have absolutely nothing in common except they are from Iceland and they are (mostly) the colour blue.
Wonderful book about the whales that inhabit the ocean around Iceland. Beautiful and highly educational.
With English you have a word like “volcano” and you don’t know why it’s called a volcano. But with Icelandic it’s easy to understand that “Eldfjall” are two words put together–“fire” and “mountain”, so it’s a “fire-mountain”, Eunsan says. “I started deconstructing words and adding to my vocabulary, and Icelandic breaks down really well into small words.”As she learned to breakdown the composite words in Icelandic she began to doodle, to draw representations of the words. The drawings become more numerous an finally she decided they needed to be compiled into a collective work – Icelandic in Icons. A book that matches our quirky words with imagery, creating the ultimate visual aid for learning Icelandic – that’s not boring.
