Antelo “Dev” Devereux Jr., a summer resident of Islesboro, has a new book out, “Maine Coast Perspectives,” available from

“Maine Coast Perspectives” offers readers an armchair tour through the vast and rugged Maine landscape via 220 vibrant color images. From Eastport to Jackman and Kittery to Madawaska, covering an area greater than the other five New England states combined, these photographs artfully capture sights and scenes that speak to the character of Maine.

The book spans rocky, ocean-splashed shores, scenic bays, schooners under sail, lighthouses, historic villages and towns, museums, sea captains’ houses, lighthouses, 18th and 19th century forts, bold granite mountains, blueberry covered hills, vast forested tracts and powerful rivers. Also included are a few bits of wry, New England humor among the images.

It goes without saying that visually and historically rich Maine has inspired many photographs, paintings, words and songs, and many more will follow, said Devereux.

“My images are simply some along that continuum. I hope they will be viewed with the same sense of fun and enjoyment as I had while taking them,” he said.
