Archipelago: An Atlas of Imagined Islands

Think for a moment that you too are castaway, washed upon a distant shore. What does it look like? And what can be found there? Take a blank sheet of paper and begin. Draw a line and see where it goes. Each of my artists did the same, and their islands have never been seen until now. Here are coastlines, beasts and botanicals; the landscapes and the peoples a castaway might encounter. From AyeAye’La to Zungeland, Atozatoll and Insectulam, and much more between. Ever been to Cosgrave and Caligo? Kyklos, Kess, or Korutar? Let’s go. Perhaps these creations may also encourage you to have a go at inventing one yourself? What better in life for a writer, not just a room of one’s own, but a whole island. The cycle of Crusoes continues.
