Welcome to New Island!

A view of New Island from 450 miles up!

Welcome to New Island and to the New Island website,
which will be in this format for the time being.
***********************
I'm inviting you to take part in an interactive journey.
***********************
I'm going to talk about this island-nation in the Indian Ocean as if it were a real place. There will be stories and articles about real and imagined New Islanders, and I'll continually add background information to let you know what the island is all about.
************************
New Island is the world's largest work of art, a 12,000-square-mile island-nation made oup of paintings, drawings, maps, documents and artifacts. Like any other similar place, New Island has a history, a unique culture and geography, its own flag, currency, railways, roads, towns, and people both real and imagined!
