THE BRITISH BOOK INDUSTRY AWARDS NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 Whether you're a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, NORWEGIAN WOOD is the perfect fireside read, and an ideal seasonal gift. Chopping and stacking wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood, you can also learn about life. And who better to impart this wisdom than an expert from Scandinavia, where the extreme climate has obliged generations to hone and share their skills with tools, wood and heat production. Lars Mytting has distilled the wisdom of enthusiasts, from experienced lifelong growers, stackers and burners to researchers and professionals of combustion and tree culture. Part guide to the best practice in every aspect of working with this renewable energy source, part meditation on the human instinct for survival, this definitive handbook on the art of chopping, stacking and drying wood in the Scandinavian way has resonated across the world, with more than half a million copies sold worldwide. NORWEGIAN WOOD and THE NORWEGIAN WOOD ACTIVITY BOOK make the ultimate companion set.

Whether set along the picturesque coast of Norway or in its remote mountains and forests, architect Wenche Selmer's wooden cabins and houses blend effortlessly into their surroundings. Combining local building traditions with modern conveniences, her designs evoke Norway in all its rugged beauty and smart Scandinavian pragmatism. Just looking at these cabins is an invitation to sit down at the lovingly designed dining table for a hearty meal, or to curl up with a book on one of the inviting corner sofas while enjoying the panoramic view through large glass windows. These are houses that, while thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted, were meant first and foremost to be lived in, and it is this accommodation of high design and livability that is partly responsible for their universal appeal.
