An Island Legacy : The Isle of Wight through the Eyes of the Brannon Family 1817 – 2017

  • This event has passed.

Kenneth Hicks

Friday 13th October 12:30 - 13:30 | Northwood House

An Island Legacy provides a comprehensive record of Isle of Wight towns, villages, sea and landscapes, historic buildings and coastal views over a period of precisely two hundred years. The book contains over 130 original Brannon family engravings and an equal number of modern coloured photographs taken by land, sea and air from exactly the same locations. There is considerable additional information about the family’s varied and impressive work, including the use by the famous architect, John Nash, of George Brannon’s engravings of East Cowes Castle to publicise his architectural practice.  The illustrations of a rare Spode porcelain tea service (1827 to 1833), with hand- painted Island scenes are particularly beautiful. ‘Young George’  Brannon founded the Isle of Wight County Press in 1884.

All profits from the sale of the book are donated to Island charities.
