Loðmar is a children’s book focused on preserving vintage vocabulary in the Icelandic language, especially among the youngest generation. The protagonist, Loðmar, lives on the opening page of the book and hasn’t experienced anything in his life yet. With the readers help, Loðmar decides to embark on a journey through the book. On the journey he meets peculiar characters that live on every page until he meets, and unintentionally releases, a never fulfilled, letter-eating monster.
Written and illustrated in cooperation with Auður Ösp Guðmundsdóttir. Sponsored by The Icelandic Centre for Research and The Icelandic Literature Fund. Published by Salka in 2010.
