There are many who collect shells, and who can spend hours looking on the beach for them and of course displaying them. This book is a fitting homage to those who find them beautiful.

Joyce Tenneson's detailed photos are a reminder of beauty that exists all around us. The photos are accompanied by quotes that are inspired by the images. They are photographed on a background of black velvet which enhances the unique aspect of each shell. The names of the shells are listed at the back of the book which is handy. There are many shells you may never see but you can now enjoy all in one place.

The author Joyce, is a respected photographer and is the author of twelve books, including Flower Portraits, Light Warriors, and the best-selling Wise Women.

This really is a stunning book and will appeal to all shell collectors and ocean lovers.
