    House, the beat-driven dance music style that developed from disco in the 1980s, has found its place in the Icelandic music scene. Design has always been a big part of this particular genre, for example on posters, flyers and in album art. In Húsverk, the Icelandic house music history is divided into different periods, featuring interviews with various DJs. The look of house music is interpreted, and its DIY mentality portrayed. The book Húsverk is mass-produced on a photo copier, with a hand-stamped cover. The records are cut in Iceland, hand-stamped with a silkscreen printed cover, and issued in a limited edition.

    Design and layout: Jónbjörn Finnbogason
