After a brief but eloquent introduction by Sydney Eddison who shares her passion for seashells and their complex and astonishing architecture, the remainder of this volume is devoted to full color photographs of every type of shell imaginable. The cover piece is the Nautilus shell and that shell is explored more fully inside the book. The clarity of the photographs is excellent and the studio lighting Feinstein uses allows the viewer to examine the myriad shells from both the inner aspects, the outer form, and a combination of both with backlighting and sensitive illumination seemingly from within.
This is one of those books to while away hours of contemplation. Recommended as an art book. Grady Harp, March 06
