COMPTON Isle of Wight
From the skies to the seas . . . a love letter to the landscape
by Rosy Burke
An inspired photo book written in poetry prose with over 140 colour photos and illustrations by Rosy Burke, photographer, designer and painter.
Rosy has long been fascinated by this small part of ‘the back of the Wight’ and hopes you will enjoy ‘travelling’ it with her.
A SENSE OF PLACE
Rosy takes you with her from The Skies to the Downs, the Farm, the Military Road, Cliffs, Beach and Seas . . . and shows photos of this beautiful area as she tells you true, interesting and amusing tales she has gathered from chasing after people in the landscape. She has stayed since a babe in arms and remembers splashing in warm pools as a toddler and moaning up the downs as a teenager. As a retired designer isolated in lockdown she was able to dream up the book to satisfy her longings to be in her favourite place.
The book is printed A4 size (29.7mm x 21.0mm) and is 40 pages printed on heavyweight silk paper including a soft back matte laminated cover. It costs £15 inc. post and packaging. UK postage only - see below.
