Product Description

Review

‘This wonderful book is like a two-dimensional cabinet of curiosities. Sometimes it’s unclear whether we’re admiring an artifact or a thought, and that is the point.’
BBC Coast presenter Nick Crane
 
‘Manages to combine art with science and produce real magic. The photographs - for this is a highly visual book - are stunning.’
The Marine Quarterly

'Beautifully and simply written, illustrated and designed. Her writing swings between personal, accessible and poetic narrative and informative natural history. Her passion shines from every page.' 
Western Morning News

'Quite simply the closest I have ever seen anyone come to describing the seashore in the way I feel the seashore.' 
Tim Smit, founder of the Eden Project

‘Everyone loved this book. It is delightful, imaginative, hugely informative and written with clarity, joy and enthusiasm. Beautifully constructed with striking photographs. A work of wonder.’ 
Judges summary, Holyer an Gof Publishers' Awards 2014 (winner) 

'This incredibly beautiful book does a wonderful job of opening up the magnificent world of our marine environment, enabling people to learn and appreciate its beauty and importance.' 
Cornwall Wildlife Trust

‘This quirky book is guaranteed to surprise, enlighten and inspire.’
Surfgirl

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book for all those who like wandering along the seashore in Cornwall or just standing and gazing at the ever changing seascapes that you find there! Beautiful photos and the sort of book you can keep dipping into and never get tired of! It definitely will not go on the book shelf as it will be in constant use! I have learned some fascinating facts from it which I am sure will impress my friends. Ideal for a present for Cornwall lovers!

The photographs in this book are jaw droppingly good, some even defy belief, but what makes the book is the commentary about Cornwall and Cornish life

A superbly unique book for an eye catching read and stroll along the sea shore. Not your average "sea shore" book....I highly recommend this from an artistic point of view for any sea shore lover.
