These Islands is a portrait of the British Isles told through powerful imagery, prose and poetry. It is the first book from Francis, a newly formed publishing house and creative studio by the creators of Cereal magazine.
These Islands takes the reader on a journey across the landscape, both natural and urban, that forms the British Isles. The book explores the peaks of Snowdonia, the shadows of Glen Coe, the rural idylls of the Lake District, and the windswept paths of the Wild Atlantic Way. Writers Richard Aslan and Charlie Lee-Potter guide you through these islands, their words casting light on the landscape and photographers Finn Beales, Jonathan Gregson, Kate Holstein and Rich Stapleton bring brooding skies, crashing seas, hills, forests, pinnacles and battlements.
Designed by Studio Faculty and printed on G.F Smith papers, the book is imbued with the same high production values and sense of beauty as Cereal magazine. These Islands is a title that combines a meticulous eye for detail, striking visuals and intricately researched content.
