From Iceland to Sweden to Finland, Monocle has made its way to the frosty climates of the Nordics to bring a lens to the art, architecture, food, and businesses driving the region.
"Following in the footsteps of our best-selling titles The Monocle Book of Italy and The Monocle Book of Japan, this is a thrilling exploration of Europe’s northernmost reaches. The Nordic region has long fostered a distinct set of values that have helped its nations excel in quiet diplomacy, thoughtful design and reasoned debate and Monocle’s editors have returned time and again for inspiration on how to live better. Looking beyond the frozen expanses, thick forests and towering mountains, The Monocle Book of the Nordics uncovers the folks, firms and stories that help the region rank highly in everything from art and architecture to eating and living well. Join us as we meet the retailers reaching higher in Reykjavík, experience Helsinki’s hottest hospitality, introduce you to Norway’s most notable designers and deliver the Danish dishes not to be missed. We might even swing past a Swedish crayfish party and strip off at a sauna or two."
