An Illustrated Coastal Year

Celia Lewis

Written and presented in the same style as 2013's popular An Illustrated Country Year, Celia Lewis's beautiful new book covers the wildlife found on and around the seashore, above and under water.

Illustrated throughout with Celia's gorgeous watercolours and linocuts, An Illustrated Coastal Year is broken up into seasons, with each featuring illustrations of flowers, insects, animals, fish, birds, shells and all sea-related species found at that time of year. Within each season there are sections on what you might see or pick up during a walk along the tideline or along a coastal path, as well as tips on what to look out for and forage with uses for what you might find, including inspiring craft projects suitable for all ages and tasty recipes by some of our best seafood chefs. Other sections include What's Flowering (wild flowers and grasses), How To's (e.g. how to read a tide table, how to recognise cloud formations), What's the Difference? (e.g. gulls, flat fish, etc.); and What's This? (ID guides for beachcombed items like mermaid's purse, etc). An Illustrated Coastal Year highlights all the flora and fauna to look out for when you visit the coast and is perfect to dip into before or after any trip to our shores. 192 pages.
