The frontespiece is glorious.Inside the technical stuff is mainly in black and white. It seems very detailed and accurate.The book moves from the development and types of shells, to the specific varities one might find.This lovely coloured page near the back names the shells on a ribbon scroll.Isn't it beautiful?It was published before the war ended, which might explain why it is printed on thin paper with rather flimsy cardboard covers. It must have been such a beautiful thing to own when life was dark in so many ways!Here is the set of my photoshoot - of course I haven't been to the beach! The observant among you will have noted the blue plastic in some of my photos. I refilled the boys' old sand pit with fresh sand for our younger visitors at my garden party.So now, back to the title. Can any of you do better than me?
She sells sea shells on the sea shore.
The shells she sells are sea shells I'm sure.
If she sells sea shells on the sea shore,
I'm sure they must be sea shore shells.
