Inspirational Islands The Isles of Scilly by David Chapman

Some 70 superb colour photographs give a portrait of the magical and inspirational Isles of Scilly.


'So much has been written about the islands that some might argue there isn't room for yet another book of pretty pictures of Tresco gardens'
exotica, a storm over the Western Rocks or a puffin with its beak stuffed with sand eels. And while there may be some truth in that view, there will always be room for photographs as accomplished and thoughtful as David Chapman

's. ... 'A guide which, at less than six inches square, fits any pocket, David Chapman's photographic celebration will serve as both an introduction to the magic of Scilly and a reminder of the islands'
beauty when dewy

-eyed holidaymakers return home.
