From the publisher


Explore the history of the British isles through 80 extraordinary creations — from Beowulf and the Bayeux Tapestry to Banksy, Stormzy, and beyond…

A companion book to the landmark BBC series, BRILLIANT ISLES tells the story of these islands through art, music, buildings and literature — the creations of visionaries, mavericks and rule-breakers who responded to their times and shaped the future. Whether read cover-to-cover or dipped into, this is a vibrant, surprising and witty guide to a unique culture, by one of our sharpest writers.
