About This Book

Cape Cod and the Islands presents a collection of stunning photographs of this popular destination. Acclaimed photographer Jake Rajs’s singular vision combines the natural beauty of the area with an informed historical perspective, resulting in uniquely lovely imagery. Locations in the Cape and on the islands include the picturesque towns of Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, and Gay Head, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket Island; the iconic Cape Cod Canal; and the countless towns on both the Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound coasts: Falmouth, Hyannis, Osterville, Chatham, Sandwich, Harwich, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown, to name only a few. Cape Cod and the Islands is the perfect keepsake gift book for the Massachusetts local resident, longtime or new visitor to the area, and the armchair traveler.

Reviews

  • "Cape Cod and the Islands is a different kind of beach book--one that lets you feel the sand between your toes without getting any in your shoes. The book measures only 5 by 7 inches yet manages to pack in 200 panoramic photographs..." ~Reader's Digest
