This ode to the ocean is written by the artist and contains linocuts of various shells found at various locales around the world. The text is hand-set in Cheltenham Italic 18pt. printed on Somerset paper. The cover is Twin Rocker handmade paper.
The deluxe version (sold out) consists of the book To The Ocean, housed in a wooden box made by New Mexico-based woodworker Art Peterson, that contains curiosities - a sea urchin shell cast in silver by Philadelphia jeweler Hatch Babikian, a hand-blown glass button from Murano, Italy, made by Andrea Giubelli, plastic fishing float fragments from County Mayo, Ireland, and shells from the Atlantic ocean, Italy and Japan. The items come protected in shibori cotton-lined fabric bags sewn by the artist. Included in the box is a book describing the contents.
