    Bunad encyclopedia on the way

    Now enthusiasts of the bunad, Norway's national folk costume, can learn more than they thought possible on the subject

    Publisher NW Damm & Søn have announced a three-volume encyclopedia of the bunad, which will supply 1,100 pages of information on Norway's national costume in all its regional variations, news agency ANB reports.

    The work has taken three years to complete and describes the costume and its history in minute detail. The set will be presented next week.

    The publishers promise that they have included all variants of the bunad, as well as 15 different Sami national costumes. The project has combined the efforts of specialist and many enthusiasts around the country.

    Bunad encyclopedia on the way

    This is good news for enthusiasts of Norwegian culture. But what, I shudder to ask, is the price expected to be ? I'm going to guess about NOK630. ($US90).
