Created in collaboration with the man who reads The UK Shipping Forecast, Zeb Soanes' this novel and diverting map adds depth and body to the UK waters in the form of stories, histories and anecdotes pertaining to the likes of Dogger, Fisher and German Bight. Names, familiar yet foggy and faraway forever evoking a curious wistfulness in the heart of The British Island , most of whom have never experienced the gentlest of swells on a 'Galway Hooker' let alone 95 ft waves in the waters of featureless Rockall but who nonetheless tune into the nightly shipping forecasts as insomniacs, vicarious mariners or merely as lovers of quasi dada-ist poetry.
