A portrait of the people and culture of Onomatopoeia, capital city, port and gateway to the Island. The town was once the stepping off point for pioneers and travellers. In 2005, Scottish Artist Charles Avery embarked on a long-term project entitled The Islanders, a detailed description of the topography, cosmology and inhabitants of a fictional island, realised in drawings, objects and texts. This book is a portrait of the people and culture of Onomatopoeia, capital city, port and gateway to the Island. The town was once the stepping off point for pioneers and travellers. It grew from an outpost to a bustling boomtown, before entering a phase of decline into depression ravaged slum, and now – in the fictional present – finds itself reborn as a regenerated city of culture with its own Museum of Modern Art.
