Museum of Hidden Beings: an illustrated guide to Icelandic creatures of myth and legend 

Paperback – July 12 2022

by Arngrimur Sigurosson 

 

Iceland is a country of striking and sometimes surreal beauty is matched by its rich and extensive folklore. Since time immemorial, Icelanders have told tales of strange encounters and experiences they have had while on their travels. From the extraordinary Finngálkn, a halfbreed of man and beast to the Kráki, a giant octopus that preys on trawlers and oil rigs, Icelandic folklore is riddled with fantastic tales that expound natural phenomenon and circumstances with many peculiar supernatural creatures that make up the myth and legend of Iceland. Take these tales, passed down from generation to generation throughout the centuries, make with them what you will and share them again.

First published in Iceland as Duldýrasafnið, The Museum of Hidden Beings is now available in English, worldwide, so that the creatures of Iceland legend might knock on new doors.
