  2. Føroysk Bindingamynstur / Bundnaturriklæð with translation (Red cover)
    $52.00

    We call it The Faroe Shawl Book. We import this unique and historic hardcover book directly from the Faroe Islands. It is in Faroese, but a translation booklet (by Marilyn van Keppel) for all 19 shawls, is included. Originally published in 1983, the shawls were found in the islands by Elsa Baerentsenach. Each shawl carries the name of the woman who knitted it - or had owned the original shawl upon which the pattern is based. A schematic, chart and color photos accompany each design. The price includes both the book and translation. Learn More
  3. Føroysk Bindingarmynstur-Debes-Black Cover
    $50.00

    A romantic backstory to this wonderful work: A number of Faroese sweaters were on exhibit in Copenhagen in 1921 and Queen Alexandrine was enchanted by the color motifs. She thought it a shame that the word-of-mouth patterns might disappear and requested that they be collected into a book. The project was undertaken by Hans Debes and here it is - in its original form. We began to import this color-pattern book directly from the Faroe Islands in 1972. Unfortunately, it was unobtainable for many years in the U.S., but now it is available again, to our great delight. Hardcover. Learn More

    Meg Swansen was smitten by this children's book in which the reader/listener is introduced to symphonic instruments through a most beguiling story, charming illustrations, and enchanting music. Schoolhouse Press obtained the subsidiary rights and had it translated into English; then Meg returned to Austria to record the voice-over for the accompanying CD, which is included with the book.
