SUMMER VACATION – Sea Shells – Handmade Book

SUMMER VACATION – HANDMADE BOOK/ART JOURNAL – Using my sea shell photographs taken on the beach along with illustrations and information about the shells.  I imagine this book as an inspiration to go to the beach and “collect” shells by taking home their photos in their natural environment, researching their names (perhaps by using my book “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” – sold on Amazon!) and doing sketches of the shells.  We can enjoy walks on the beach and protect our coastal environments.  I have seen beaches here in San Diego that 40 years ago had shells and today have none.  If we hope to have future generations enjoy seeing shells on the beach, then we must “Leave Nothing, Take Nothing”.
