Island Treasures


We tend to think of islands in terms of their appeal as destinations, as if each were a self-contained parcel of attributes, natural and cultural, that we visit, enjoy and then leave behind. Too often overlooked is the vast influence that even the tiniest island can have on the wider world—on the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the games we play and the music we listen to. Here, some of the people who shape these cultural pearls describe their origins, their appeal and the lands from which they emerged.
