A journey through Iceland reveals natural, primordial materials: hand-spun wool, horsehair, horn, reindeer antler, lava stone and driftwood. Hand- crafted objects- each unique in the world- are made-to-order by Iceland's foremost artists and artisans. Starkness, restraint and strength of design reflect the stunning raw landscapes of the country- at once ancient and yet utterly modern.


Photographer Paul Mutimear's arresting new book springs from a serendipitous moment which led to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Iceland.

Mutimear's other occupations as musician and colorist influence an art of improvisation as he manually uses three variables in a camera: shutter speed, aperture and sensitivity, in a similar way he might the three primary colors in paint mixing or pitch, volume and timbre in music.
