A celebration of the unique, magical islands of Britain.
Beyond the British shores and straight out to sea lie the most magical islands, just waiting to be discovered. Little worlds, unique in their rugged and breath-taking geography, legends and folklore, scattered with ruins, wildlife and clues to their fascinating past, many remain untouched by the modern world.
Take a journey, take a leap, and discover lands you never knew. Explore Lundy, the perfect refuge for pirates and a cast of other ne'er-do-wells; St Kilda, the tiny island that was inhabited for over 2000 years but now lies abandoned; or Hy Brasil, a mirage that was featured on maps for centuries but never even existed.
Lundy, Rockall, Dogger, Fair Isle is an illustrated celebration of the islands round Britain and their rare magic.
