Island Dreams

By Gavin Francis

Island Dreams by Gavin Francis is a beautiful book from an original mind: it explored the place of islands in our psyche, and its glowing illustrations make it an ideal present for anyone who has missed travelling this year.

Described as ‘a simple but sincere cartography of my own obsession with the twinned but opposing allures of island and city, of isolation and connection’, Island Dreams explores the appeal of islands in our consciousness by recounting some of the author’s own travels and some popular voyages from literature.
