HROSS | Icelandic horses photography book


I am back from Iceland after an amazing week and I love you to see some of my souvenirs! It is not a secret I am a huge Mad et Len fan and I still love to think back at seeing the whole collection and the installation Alexandre made of the brand in Paris during Designweek. To be honest I couldn't think of a better place then Iceland, with it's many volcanoes, to extend my collection and buy a lovely box of lava stones with an amazing fragrance.



I think books are a great addition to your home I place them on the small picture ledges in my studio and love to display them on a side or coffee table, showing the best pictures. I thought I'd show you my latest addition for the coffee table I brought home from Iceland.

HROSS, meaning horses in Icelandic, I found in a small photography shop where the work of different Icelandic photographers is sold. On my first day in Reykjavik I made one of the most famous Icelandic tours, 'The Golden Circle tour' and had the chance to see the Icelandic horses close by, it has a long history that you can read
 here. The book contains beautiful photos of horses shot by Icelandic photographer Johannes Frank
