The Book of Tides
An idiosyncratic, richly illustrated guide to Britain's rivers, seas and shores which explains everything you need to know about life on the coast.
A veritable "Norwegian Wood" for water, it is inspired by the author's travels around Britain's coastline in a panel van with his young family. William Thomson, artist and oceanographer, tells the story of the cycles of the sea. He combines a lyrical, passionate narrative with graphically beautiful renderings of the main forms of water which affect Britain: Rip, Rapids, Swell, Stream, Tide, Wave, Whirlpool, Tsunami.
