The Islands Book

Lonely Planet

Islands have long been a source of fascination for travellers and there’s an endless variety to explore: from storm-battered Faroes to the sort of tropical islands where long-gone pirates may have buried their treasure hauls.

Following a similar format to Lonely Planet’s iconic pictorial The Travel Book, The Islands Book presents 150 of the world’s most unique and enchanting islands. All are notable for their history, wildlife or cultural qualities, and have been selected according to how unique and fascinating they are.

All island profiles feature:

  • An overview of the island’s backstory
  • Beautiful photography that provides an insight into life on the island
  • Large-scale detailed maps that highlight the island’s top 5 points of interest, from landmarks to volcanoes, beaches and wildlife
  • Practical information so that you can plan your visit
  • Bespoke illustrations

Featuring stunning cover artwork by Taiwanese illustrator, Whooli Chen, and presented in a premium hardcover format, The Islands Book provides endless ideas for future seaside escapes and makes an inspirational gift for a special traveller in your life.
