Ibiza is more than just a Mediter­ranean is­land; it is an al­most myth­i­cal land of plea­sure. Fa­mous first as an es­cape for artists and in­tel­lec­tu­als flee­ing op­pres­sion in the 1930s, it turned into a refuge for celebri­ties (think El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor and Richard Bur­ton) and then a home for hip­pies dur­ing the sum­mer of love. Ev­ery­one from rock leg­ends such as Pink Floyd, Fred­die Mer­cury, Joni Mitchell and David Bowie to fash­ion icons like Kate Moss and Jade Jag­ger have called the is­land home, cit­ing a par­tic­u­lar cre­ative urge that is some­how un­leashed with all that sun, sea and sex. And while liv­ing there year round may prove rather tricky for those of us who aren’t rock stars or su­per­mod­els, own­ing a gor­geous book full of colour­ful im­ages and even more colour­ful tales is def­i­nitely a good back-up op­tion.
