Artist Josie Iselin celebrates the diversity and beauty of nature with her exquisite portraits of seashells. Like her extremely well loved Beach Stones and Leaves & Pods, Seashells is not a field guide but an artful and informative portrayal of a beloved component of our natural world. The book balances the exotic with the familiar, from tropical corals and rare fossils to everyday clamshells and barnacles. In her introduction and captions, marine geologist and paleontologist Sandy Carlson introduces the reader to seashells in all their selection, explaining why they look as they do. Both an art book and a contemplation of nature, Seashells combines aesthetic delight in natural items with scientific fact and philosophical wonder.
