Reykjavik

35.00

Reykjavik is a wonderous place. I first visited during the winter solstice when the entire city was cloaked in warm grey light and snow. I spent an afternoon trapped in a pop-up Icelandic dirge poetry reading at a coffee shop that even the Icelanders found strange. The next day my tour bus crashed into a snow bank at 45 degree angle and we spent the afternoon on a farm after being rescued by a man whose English sounded like it came from a steel pot with polished boulders inside. The next evening I crashed Björk's Christmas party in a bar called Boston by sheer accident after rejecting Danish beer at the previous bar's happy hour. 

I created this map design to thank an Icelandic woman who runs a cafe I hadn't expected to find on the English coast in a small seaside town. She gave me amazing coffee, fed me fantastic food, and returned my railcard to me on my birthday after I lost it. 

This map covers the area near Hallgrímskirkja.

Paper: 160 gsm acid-free archival quality paper.

Backing: Mountboard (unaffixed)

Dimensions: 21cm x 21cm

Framing: I recommend a shadow box frame, or dual glazed frame (where the back and front are either acrylic or glass) to allow the map to cast shadows and come alive on the wall.
