Celia Lewis' gorgeous watercolour paintings, including striking images of puffins, accompany fun facts about coastal wildlife in her wonderful new book, An Illustrated Coastal Year. In the same style as her previous book, An Illustrated Country Year, Celia Lewis' book is inevitably eye-catching and a pleasure to read.
The book is divided into the different seasons of the year with a few seasonal recipes using coastal ingredients by some of the best seafood chefs, including Rick Stein, Mitch Tonks, Ellen Parr and Sarah Raven, thrown in for good measure. Additionally, Lewis features coastal-themed crafts, including a shell clock and sea-glass jewellery – perfect to treasure memories of your coastal trips.
This is the ideal book to accompany you on your visits to the coast. With pretty trinket crafts to keep you busy and tasty recipes to experiment with, An Illustrated Coastal Year is a fascinating book to add to your collection.
