THE CHILDREN OF ODIN: THE BOOK OF NORTHERN MYTHS was written by Padraic Colum - poet, playwright, founder of the Irish Review, a leader of the Irish renaissance, and an outstanding author of books for children, for which he won the Regina Medal. Plum Park press is in the process of publishing The Children of Odin in four miniature volumes, corresponding to the four parts of the original book, and presented complete and unabridged, with the original illustrations by Willy Pogany. The books will be typeset in Lindisfarne Nova, a typeface inspired by the manuscript used in the Lindisfarne gospels more than 1000 years ago, and are to be printed on animal-free parchment, and bound in faux leather. Each volume will have a unique color scheme - brown, blue, green, or black - each in each volume the color will appear in the parchment, the illustrations, and the binding.
The first volume of The Children of Odin is The Dwellers in Asgard - shown open in the photograph above - and it is available now. (The remaining three volumes will be published one at a time every few months, and if you buy this volume you will be notified as each new volume becomes available.) This volume has a brown color-scheme, and consists of 240 pages, with overall dimensions 73 x 60 x 18 mm (2-7/8 x 2-3/8 x 11/16 inches). The series will be limited to 20 copies. Each volume is priced at $50 plus $5 for worldwide shipping and handling.
