Alex Preston reviewing Patrick Barkham's 'Islander' in the Financial Times, October 2017

"Each of the 11 chapters is illustrated with a vignette by Emily Faccini, who also gives us some pleasingly minimalist cartography. We’re currently living through a golden age in book design and this is right up there with the most beautiful publications of the year so far."
