How many of you could locate the Isle of Wight on a map? Best known for its annual music festival that attracts superstars from the worlds of rock and pop, the island sits off the southern coast of England and is a popular tourist destination.

But the island is now also pitching itself as “one of the most dog-friendly places in Britain” with a lavish, 24-page brochure called “Pawprint”:

Publicists describe the guide as “written by Isle of Wight dogs and their humans to spell out all the things that make the island a great place for dogs to visit on holiday with their families.” It includes the different haunts of a dozen four-legged residents of the island, which is a short ferry journey from the south coast of England.

The brochure is really a lot of fun, even if you’re not planning a trip to the Isle of Wight. There are loads of great photos of both dogs and the lovely countryside, and some of the vignettes are ingenious. You can download “pawprints” on the Wightlink website.
