A Celebration of the Isle of Wight

With engaging first-person accounts and stunning contemporary photographs, this independent, large format, hardback book celebrates the unique, the innovative, the dazzling – the Isle of Wight.

While the Island is steeped in storied history, The Wight Book gives voice to the uncommon present-day place. An island community of engaging people and limitless momentum is artfully revealed in the words of 22 leading figures who live and work here. Along with breathtaking images that are a testament to the Island’s perpetual vitality and natural allure, The Wight Book is a captivating calling card.

If you work to bring holiday makers, home buyers or business ventures to the Island, The Wight Book is an invaluable tool you won’t want to be without. If you call the Island home, then The Wight book is indeed your story – our collective pride of place proclaimed on each and every full-colour page of this fresh account of today’s Isle of Wight.
