Title: Um Úrnat frá Björk - Handmade Original Book
Book Condition: Used; Like New
Dust Jacket Condition: Used; Like New
A very rare Icelandic fairy tale and poetry book written and produced by Björk in 1984 when she was a teenager. 16 pp., folded paper with pictures and poetic text, with handwritten text and outlines printed in facsimile, extensively illustrated in original watercolor and colored pencils entirely in Björk's hand, this example also signed and inscribed by Björk on the first page in blue ink. Acquired directly by our consignor from Björk in downtown Reykjavík when she was a young girl selling these on the corner, just on the threshold of world stardom. The text is a story/poem of Björk's fantasy beings, some of whom later appeared in other of her texts. A few small stains to the cover and scattered small impressions to the pages, otherwise in fine condition. Other examples of this book, apparently existing in fewer than 100 copies total, each uniquely illustrated, were recently displayed in the 2015 Björk exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. No copies recorded by Worldcat and none to our knowledge in the trade. Bookseller Inventory # 11829
