The August-September issue of Iceland Review – Atlantica 2014 has appeared in time for the last glorious summer days in Iceland. Themed ‘Outside,’ the cover is of a grass-encircled window of a turf farm. Inside the magazine, Icelandic turf farms are featured extensively in words and images.
With topics being diverse, as always, articles include an interview with Baldvin Z, director of the most popular film in Iceland this year, Zoë Robert’s feature on multiculturalism in Icelandic society, Eygló Svala Arnarsdóttir and Páll Stefánsson’s coverage of this year’s Landsmót Horse Festival and a preview from Ragnar Axelsson’s new photo book on life in the West Nordic countries.
Folklorist Benný Sif Ísleifsdóttir covers the Icelandic surname tradition, Eygló discusses myths and politics, Páll visits the shrinking Sólheimajökull glacier and remote Langanesbyggð and Zoë talks with Hermann Ottósson, secretary general of the Red Cross in Iceland.
Also don’t miss the latest in culture and design, our tips on noteworthy museums and exhibitions, author Alda Sigmundsdóttir’s scoop on elfish lovers, Jóhannes Frank’s horse portraits, the last words of farmer and former Minister of Education and Culture Vilhjálmur Hjálmarsson, photographer Geir Ólafsson’s Fimmvörðuháls hike and a charming little football field in East Iceland.
