Riceboy Sleeps
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This powerful and enigmatic small volume has been hotly anticipated by Sigur Ros fans for some time. A reprint of the first artist's book from frontman Jon "Jónsi" Thor Birgisson and his boyfriend Alex Somers, which was originally released only in Iceland, "Riceboy Sleeps" is finally available worldwide.Birgisson designs Sigur Ros' album sleeves, and garnered the band a Grammy-nomination for the artwork on their untitled album, "( )." "Riceboy Sleeps" is beautifully produced, bearing the taped and tattered edges, hand drawing and distressed and collaged elements that make Sigur Ros' album artwork stand apart in an age of piling high and selling cheap. Every detail of production has been exquisitely refined, from the softly rounded corners to the paper stock, from the print quality to the subtle de-bossing both inside and out. At 52 pages, "Riceboy Sleeps" contains no text, just Birgisson and Somers' highly expressionistic works created from found photographs and layers of textures.Sigur Ros is an Icelandic post-rock band known for their atmospheric, ethereal, minimalist arrangements and lead singer Jon "Jónsi" Thor Birgisson's unique falsetto. Members Birgisson, Georg Hólm, Kjartan "Kjarri" Sveinsson and Orri Páll D rason have been working together since 1994.
