9783858812995: When You Travel in Iceland You See a Lot of Water: A Travelbook Including a Discussion Between Tumi Magnusson and Roman Signer

Iceland’s remote location and unforgiving climate may seem like insurmountable obstacles for visitors. But for a certain strain of traveler—awed by the rough landscape, the shooting geysers, and the volcanic craters—the first visit to Iceland is just the start of a long love affair with the island nation.

            
Swiss artist Roman Signer is just that sort of traveler, and this book is his love letter to its harsh charms. Created in conjunction with Icelandic artist Tumi Magnússon, his close friend and frequent traveling companion, the book mixes personal snapshots with anecdotes, reminiscences, and humorous observations about travel, the natural world, the differences between Switzerland and Iceland, and—as with any conversation between artists—the difficulties of making art, no matter where one calls home. When You Travel in Iceland You See a Lot of Water is thus a travel book unlike any other, one whose authors simultaneously invite you along on a journey and extend a hand in friendship.
