'Unforgettable Islands...' is far more than just the standard run-of-the-mill coffee-table photographic book. The images are breathtaking for sure, but the text includes an unusual depth of useful information and enough atmosphere to really draw you into the beauty and fascination of some of the most enticing places in the world. Steve Davey's name is familiar to many since, apart from his books, he has also built a career on producing well-crafted travel features for magazines and newspapers. Davey's eye for an evocative anecdote is as clear as his eye for an original photographic angle. Marc Schlossman too is clearly a talented photojournalist, and added his skills to ensure that this book is not only pure 'eye-candy' for anyone with a yearning to see some of the world's most intriguing or attractive islands but is also a refreshingly good read.
Keep 'Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die' in an accessible spot on your bookshelf. Flip through once in a while and you will almost certainly see that it lives up to its promise...and offers all the inspiration needed to actually head out there and see some of these places.
