Beloved author Josie Iselin's collaged images of the treasures we live with as reminders of the beachfrom sea glass to driftwood, shells to stonesevoke the timeless elements of sand, ocean, and refreshing sea air. In her writings, Iselin shares thoughts on the varied ways we experience the beach while also providing fascinating insights into the scientific ecosystem of the ocean, such as how the oyster constructs its shell and the ways in which algae is classified. At once an exploration and a meditation, Beach: A Book of Treasure will delight and inspire anyone who values the unique environment of the seashore and the myriad wonders found therein.
San Francisco-based artist Josie Iselin has exhibited her work at several coveted art spaces, including the Yerba BuenaCenter for the Arts and SF Camerawork, among others. She uses a flatbed scanner to create her still life imagery.
