The companion volume "The Making of the Book of Sark" is written by Fiona Toplis the artist's great grandaughter on the man, his life and his work. It contains historical notes, a detailed description using his meticulous records of how and where he painted and a series of modern photographs of the views he painted, showing how little they have changed in 100 years.
