A new gem has appeared on Njálsgata 14. The new art bookstore and publishing house Útúrdúr continues to attract attention despite square footage and discreet location. Last Sunday, Útúrdúr sponsored a small party with browsing encouraged and music supplied by local idiosyncratic indie pop collective Benni Hemm Hemm. Útúrdúr stocks a quaint selection of art books featuring the work of both local and international artists, a collection that changes from week to week in a constant effort to supply the freshest and best work out there. Occupying a total of three rooms plus a back garden, Útúrdúr has a real reading room feel. Books and magazines are neatly strewn around the place, each one begging to be read. Only a few books are kept out at a time, but once they are snapped up, they are quickly replaced by new and exciting material. Útúrdúr is a special little shop with quality items and a quality setting for them. An exciting new location in town, just waiting to be explored.
