      Nordic Art of Happiness

      • Overview
      • About the author

      Overview

      This is an ideal journey into Nordic happiness (lycka), through Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland – countries few people know very well but that are garnering more and more interest thanks to their lifestyles, culture, trends, creativity, modernity and beauty. The book is divided into five short sections, each with its own core topic and colour drawings, and features a collection of theme stories. Discover the four countries – from society and lifestyle to design, from local cuisine to culture and traditions, from the four capitals to Lapland, with geographical, historical, musical and literary references, like Nordic noir. Focus points on Sweden are especially numerous. With a direct, story-like style modelled on news reports and including quotes and keywords in original and in translation, the book offers accurate descriptions of places, events and people.
