E-BOOK EXCERPT

The latest Scandinavian publishing phenomenon is not a Stieg Larsson like thriller; it's a book about chopping, stacking, and burning wood that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden and has been a fixture on the bestseller lists there for more than a year. Norwegian Wood provides useful advice on the rustic hows and whys of taking care of your heating needs, but it's also a thoughtful attempt to understand man's age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing. The U.S. edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original, and includes an appendix of U.S.-based resources and contacts.

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. Norwegian Wood is the first book on the life and architecture of Wenche Selmer (19201998)one of the few women who gained prominence among European architects in the mid-twentieth century. Fourteen of her beautiful wooden cabins and houses are featured in detailed descriptions, plans, and a wealth of archival images and newly commissioned color photography. Whether you're planning to build your own vacation home, have always loved Scandinavian design or simply enjoy the warmth and sensuality of wooden architecture, you'll find plenty of inspiration here.
