Reviews

'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 '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 Nicholas 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 detail. Her passion shines from every page.' Western Morning News '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
