What are Tindra Tales?


Tindra Tales are the retelling of centuries old Icelandic folktales.

Photos, illustrations, and a soundscape are the backdrop for a high-end, modern take on these old tales bringing the stories of our ancestors into the 21st century.

There will be two books; one for children telling a classic story and, one for adults using Iceland's famous nightlife to spice things up a little! The stories will be collectively put together using the research that has been happening for the last few months. Stories will also be finalized after interviewing Icelanders of all ages and types and asking them to tell us their favorite tales.

The storybook's backdrop will be stunning photographs taken in Iceland to support the tales, with illustrations added to bring the hidden elfin (Huldufólk) world alive. The sound card will be filled with a soundscape captured in Iceland and original music sourced while travelling the island.

Team members are all accomplished artists in their own disciplines and have come together, offering their specific skill to the project. The Tindra Tales Artists Objective is to develop and share two modern books that will be something you want to look at, listen to and read over and over!
