These Islands is the title of Cereal Magazine’s first hard-back book. Cereal is best known for their magazine and their beautifully formed travel guides which are published twice yearly, providing helpful tips and information on selected locations. With a stripped-down and minimal aesthetic, Cereal provides chapters that focus on cities with stories, covering people, places and products. As always with Cereal, the highlight of the publications is the stunning photography.
Turning their hands to a hardback, this book aims to convey a portrait of the British Isles. The book contains a hefty 232 pages, printed on uncoated, G.F. Smith paper in the United Kingdom – it’s a real must-have. Along with a vacant yet ethereal style of photography, the publication will contain a selection of prose and powerful poetry. Introducing nooks that are so rarely seen, the perspective is taken from those people that really love and value these places. Exploring the less tread corners of Edinburgh, London and Bath, the books also ventures from the Isles of Skye to the Isles of Scilly and the peaks of Snowdonia to the escapes of the Lake District.
“In many ways, this book is Cereal’s tribute to these islands. It’s not only our opportunity to introduce a very special part of the world to those who aren’t familiar with it, but also a chance to celebrate it with those who know and love it. Within these pages, you’ll find essays, paintings, and poetry inspired by these islands, alongside stories dedicated to the 13 locations we chose simply because they are the ones we love the most.”
