    Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage

    Mapmaker Tim Robinson moved to the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland in the 1970s and fell in love with their geography and history. In Pilgrimage, he walks the perimeter of Árainn, its largest island, and the result is “a loving anatomy…in which the point where nature and culture meet in the island is observed with great beauty and precision.” (Colm Tóibín)
