Icelandfilter: Can someone send me a phone book?
January 6, 2017 5:13 PM

TL;DR -- Can you please send me the final printed edition of the phone book from Iceland? I will pay shipping costs.

I have recently learned two interesting things about the phonebooks of your country: first that they have recently been phased out of printing in favor of a digital-only edition, and second, that they are alphabetized by first name, and that their professions are also listed.


I can't really explain why I want one of these phonebooks, but I do. I want one SO BAD. Something about the combination of the final edition of an obsolete reference material with the idea of having an alphabetized listing of an entire nation's residents and their occupations pushes many of my silly-research-meets-awesome-organization-meets-bookcollecting buttons all at the same time.

If anyone has one of those books, or is in a position to track down one, please leave a comment or MeMail me. I'll be happy to repay shipping expenses as long as it doesn't get to pricey -- International Economy or something similar -- via Paypal. And if you are listed in the book, let me know how you feel about it and whether you're sad it's going away.

Þakka þér!
