161 - The Sea Glass Chronicles: Whispers From the Past; C.S. Lambert
The Sea Glass Chronicles: Whispers From the Past, caught my eye while searching Amazon's books for something a bit different. An avid beach lover, I enjoy walking the beaches nearby, as well as other beaches while vacationing within the US and/or other countries. I've always had a passion for unusual treasures from the calming sea.
This book is so so beautiful, and was written by an artisan. The illustrations are gorgeous and so very captivating. All photos were captured by a professional photographer. The true stories about the origins of some of the unusual pieces featured, made for great reading. This is not a reference book that will tell you where to find the best sea glass, so if that is what you are looking for, this is not the book for you.
If you are looking for a beautiful coffee table book with gorgeous photos and a history to tell as well, this one will not disappoint. This book would make a great gift for most beach lovers or sea glass collectors.
