Book of Shells

A Lifesize Guide to Identifying and Classifying Six Hundred Shells
Jerry Harawewych & Fabio Moretzsohn

Description

The Book of Shells presents a lifesize collection of 600 of the most significant shells.

Each shell is reproduced lifesize, and the book is arranged by shell family, and by size within each family, providing instant visual identification and comparison. Accompanying text for every example is divided into charted specifications, a general 'biography,' a summary of related species and an extended caption that provides a detailed visual description. Magnified details reveal the diversity of pattern, while miniature line drawings reveal the variation in structure.

The result is a collector's piece that is both a significant resource for enthusiasts and scholars, and the most visually stimulating guide to shells you could wish to find.
