    Nordicana: 100 Icons of Scandi Culture & Nordic Cool Description:

    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 quick introduction to 100 icons of Scandi culture and Nordic cool, accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs. 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); Midsummer seasonal celebrations; practical but breathtakingly stylish interiors; or the darkest noir literature and dramas, you'll find the keys to attaining the Nordic way of life in these pages.
