    From Book Depository:

    In CoDex 1962, Sjón has woven ancient and modern material and folklore and cosmic myths into a singular masterpiece—encompassing genre fiction, theology, expressionist film, comic strips, fortean studies, genetics, and, of course, the rich tradition of Icelandic storytelling.

    Translated for Icelandic by Victoria Cribb and published by MCD, a new division of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, in September 2018. The cover was designed by Rodrigo Corral. It shows centered caps in a hand-rendered outline version of Neue Helvetica Condensed Black, with color gradient accentuations.
