THE BOOK OF PEBBLES

  

by Christopher Stocks and  Angie Lewin
  
(New copy)
   

Why do we pick up pebbles on the beach? What is it we see in them, and why do we take them home to display on our shelves? Is it their inherent beauty, their infinite variation, or simply their associations with a happy time and place?

 

This book, part social history and part practical guide, unearths the sometimes surprising story of our love-affair with pebbles, and considers how the way we see them today has been influenced over the years by artists, authors and even archaeologists. It is illustrated with artist Angela Lewin's paintings and sketches.

 

The book also looks at the legal and geological aspects of of pebble collecting, and includes a short guide to some of Britain's finest pebble beaches.
