Artist Josie Iselin celebrates the diversity and beauty of nature with her exquisite portraits of seashells. Like her extremely popular "Beach Stones" and "Leaves & Pods", "Seashells" is not a field guide but an artful and informative portrayal of a beloved part of our natural world. While it draws upon unparallelled shell collections, "Seashells" balances the exotic with the familiar, from tropical corals and rare fossils to everyday clamshells and barnacles. As in her previous books, Iselin arranges these precious natural objects into striking images, which she produces on a flatbed scanner. In her introduction and captions, marine geologist and paleontologist, Sandra J. Carlson introduces the reader to seashells in all their variety, explaining why they look as they do. Both an art book and a contemplation of nature, "Seashells" combines aesthetic delight in natural things with scientific fact and philosophical wonder.
