Every spring, over fifty species of migratory birds come to Iceland and lay their eggs in the mild and bright Arctic summer. In the winter snow covers the ground and Northern Lights light up the sky. In Here is Iceland you can read all about this volcanic island: its birds and mammals, mountains and shores, hot springs and geysers, people and culture – through spring, summer, fall and winter.
Here is Iceland! by Margrét Tryggvadóttir and Linda Ólafsdóttir was welcomed by Icelandic readers of all ages. The book was nominated for the Icelandic Literary Award and received the Women’s Literary Award, the Reykjavík City Literary Award for illustrations, and the award of the Association of Icelandic Graphic Designers.
