Unravelling the Ripple by Helen Douglas


This photographic portrait of the Hebridean coastline is a poetic tribute to the power of the all encompassing tides. An investigation into the sea, this stunningly hypnotic artist's book will lull you in as you flip page to page, displaying images of what remains at low tide.  Rebecca Solnit contributes an introductory essay very much in the spirit of the photographs themselves: a lilting, poetic meditation on the sea and the shore. This book makes one realize that the ocean is a treasure that never ceases to run out.
