Nature & Wildlife

From Coast & Cove: An Artist’s Year in Pen and Paint

An inspirational artistic journal of life by the sea by celebrated illustrator Anna Koska
 


Both grounding and uplifting, the new book from author and acclaimed illustrator Anna Koska walks us through the four seasons on the English coast. Beautifully observed, contemplative, and deeply personal, the book combines emotive and evocative tales of life beside the sea with Anna’s exquisitely detailed and intricate illustrations of the plants and wildlife found in the water and along the coastline.
 
A love letter to the natural world captured in materials ranging from ink and watercolor to egg tempera, From Coast & Cove details an artist’s year spent beside the sea. A book to savor, and a wonderful celebration of nature’s cycles and minutiae.
