Romance and adventure amidst the sunlit sea - the stuff that dreams are made of - are the inspiration for a major new series, Island Dreams.
Intended for today's travellers attracted by the sense of individuality imparted by the very notion of 'islands', the series combines spectacular illustrations by some of the world's leading travel photographers and 'spirit of place' commentaries.
The most magical islands of the Mediterranean are beautifully evoked by photojournalist Jeremy Horner in this book the first volume of the series.
Some, like Capri, are already well-known; others, like Croatian Vis, or Brijuni in the Dalmatians, are just entering the consciousness of island travellers.
Hvar was once an outpost of the Venetian empire and consequently enjoys a legacy of elegant architecture, as does neighbouring Korcula, sometimes referred to as 'Little Dubrovnik'.
Corfu, Rhodes and Mykonos have been included from the galaxy of Greek island gems, but so too have delicious Santorini and the less familiar Zakynthos. Whether the desire is for an unspoilt coastline and an unrushed pace of life, or escape from the obvious, or Riviera sophistication without the accompanying over-development, everyone's dreams will be fully satisfied by the first book in this dazzling new series.
