Welcome to Literary Britain and Ireland. We are attempting to create a comprehensive collection of photographs of GB and Irish literary landmarks including: graves, memorials, statues, plaques, birthplaces, houses, landscapes etc. We are also interested in photographs/portraits of writers, photographs inspired by poems (preferably with poem attached), literary illustrations and other literature-related art work. Please do not post book cover images.

Group Description

A celebration of British and Irish literary heritage - focusing on the life and work of poets, novelists, playwrights, diarists, historians, nature writers and short story writers.

The main thrust of the group is to build up a comprehensive and good quality photographic record of all the significant literary landmarks in Britain and Ireland. However, we also welcome other photographs/illustrations connected with writers.

Please geotag your pictures and include as many geographical details of the location as possible (e.g. village/town/county/country) - this will make life easier for those wishing to plan visits of their own. Any relevant information regarding ownership, access, contact details, etc. would also be appreciated. Accompanying quotes from writers and biographical/historical information are positively encouraged, the more the better.

We're hoping to create a searchable index for the group, but for this to work the pictures need to be tagged with the name of the writer/writers that they relate to. The admins will add tags to any photos which don't already have them but would very much appreciate any postings to the pool which arrive ready for indexing.

Simple, borderless images with minimal editing are preferred as the aim of the group is to create a documentary record rather than to explore the further limits of Photoshop or HDR. Photographs of locations outside GB and Ireland may be removed by the admins.
