This book is a wonderful inspirational tome that, given to the right person, will make a delightful present. The thick rich paper, the delicate (yet accurate) maps of islands, the greatly researched pieces of information on every island - all of this makes the book a delightful hardcover. I imagine myself as a traveller. I imagine travelling and reaching out to all 50 islands described in the book. What a journey this will be.
This is truly inspirational to read, like an old school book of maps, or an atlas of some fantastic far-away lands that are not easily reachable (and they are not!), yet all of the islands can be visited.
I have the bigger size version of the book, which I would choose over the mini format (which I saw in the shop and wanted to buy, only realising that I have the original version) - Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will
(not very keen on the yellow cover of the pocket edition). Yet, not judging the book by its cover, this will make a fantastic present for an experienced traveller, or a budding traveller, or for a dreamer.
