Seashells
Iselin, Josie (Author), Carlson, Sandy (Author)

Artist Josie Iselin celebrates the diversity and beauty of nature with her exquisite portraits of seashells. Like her extremely popular Beach Stones and Leaves & Pods, Seashells is not a field guide but an artful and informative portrayal of a beloved part of our natural world. While it draws upon unparallelled shell collections, Seashells balances the exotic with the familiar, from tropical corals and rare fossils to everyday clamshells and barnacles. As in her previous books, Iselin arranges these precious natural objects into striking images, which she produces on a flatbed scanner. In her introduction and captions, marine geologist and paleontologist, Sandra J. Carlson introduces the reader to seashells in all their variety, explaining why they look as they do. Both an art book and a contemplation of nature, Seashells combines aesthetic delight in natural things with scientific fact and philosophical wonder.

Wonder and Delight: A Dolph Gotelli Christmas

Overview Designer and collector Dolph Gotelli creates wondrous Christmas displays by combining his various collections into exquisite celebratory installations. Inspired by his international travel, a Neapolitan crèche is flanked by a jeweled textile from Rajasthan, a Mexican angel is surrounded by Chinese paper garlands, and Christmas trees are adorned with German ornaments and Victorian ephemera. Gotelli's whimsical designs are presented in a series of creative tablescapes documented from assorted installations. In his design for a fantasy tea party at the Filoli Mansion near San Francisco, the entire tabletop, frosted like a cake, displayed a wonderful variety of confections, including a sugarplum fairy alighting next to a glass-domed gingerbread castle. The china teacups and dessert plates, complete with the image of Santa, were set among trees composed of every imaginable candy, chocolate molded figures, and lollipops. This spectacular chronicle of Gotelli’s work would be welcome under any Christmas tree.
