Whittington, UK: Nomad Letterpress, 2019. Oblong folio, ff, illustrated throughout in color with three double-page spreads hand-colored using pochoir. Blue half-morocco, beige cloth boards, slipcase, with an extra suite of plates in a separate portfolio, new. Deluxe portfolio edition, limited to 15 copies. A delightful record of a trip from San Francisco to Venice CA. The author/artist states: "My first books, Coastline, chronicles a two-week trip down California's iconic Pacific Coast Highway between the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles. In the Autumn of 2016, my husband Luke and I decided to hit the road in California with a simple plan - to follow the highway South. For ten days we traveled along the rugged coastline of Big Sur, through the rolling hills of San Simeon, and settled under the swaying palm trees of Venice Beach. I didnt anticipate becoming so enchanted by it all and couldnt resist documenting along the way. Coastline includes fifty engravings and pochoir illustrations which draw inspiration from the autumnal coastal plant-life and dazzling ocean views, and are accompanied by my travel diary. The book is a celebration of a beautiful landscape and a tribute to that time traveling down the California coast."
