Beer – Around the World in 120 Mugs.
After tea and water, beer is the most popular drink in the world and almost every country has its own beer history. The book is written by Stefán Pálsson and Höskuldur Sæmundsson, who have for years used their popular Beer School as a platform to inform Icelanders about the pleasures of beer. Here they share their knowledge in a highly informative yet hilariously funny "World History" of beer.

Find a flag
Based on the illustrated suggestion of my book The Flag / Fáninn, as a part of DesignMarch 2014. All the suggestions were made into flags for the first time, and raised on flag-poles.
A total of 28 flags could be found all around downtown Reykjavík.
Raise a flag (Skjótum upp fána)
Project in collaboration with:
Atli Þór Árnason & Unnie Arendrup
100 years after the Flag Committee (which chose the design of the Icelandic flag) asked to public for their suggestions for a new Icelandic flag, we decided to do it again.
Instead of asking for written submissions by advert in the local newspapers, we created a website offering anyone and everyone to make their design of a „new Icelandic flag“, in writing. We then took each suggestion and illustrated them to be shown as an exhibition at Gallery Þoka, as a part of Design March 2014.
A total of 121 flags made it to the exhibition, submitted from designers, kids, office workers alike.
The Flag / Fáninn
The project that started the whole flag-series that is still ongoing. A book illustrating for the first time the proposed designs for the Icelandic flag, submitted by the public in 1914.
The book, which is in english and icelandic, was first self-published in 2008. After being sold out for a few years, it was re-published as a 2nd revised edition in 2014, this time by Crymogea.
It shows all the submissions by the public, as well as a selection of the old Icelandic flags and seals, with an introduction by Prof. Guðmundur Oddur Magnússon and a short history by Haukur Harðarson.
