We Were an Island

A new book has been published about Art and Nan Kellam, who married in 1935 and moved to an uninhabited island off the coast of Maine in 1949, where they remained together until 1985. The book, We Were An Island, tries to tell a more complete story of the Kellam’s existence from letters they wrote to family members and by using a manuscript the two were working on at the time of their deaths.

David Graham’s photos of the Kellam’s house are all over the place, but I can’t get enough of looking at them.
