About this title

"Life bears the memory of its aquatic origins. Every living creature, animal or plant...even man...is above all a form of water." --Jean Dorst, Water, 1990.
Maryjo Koch's Pond, Lake, River, Sea has been honored as a Scientific American Book of the Year, and it's easy to see why. From the delicate paintings of shrimp and krill to the Japanese-inspired images of carp and goldfish, Koch's illustrations and text not only inform, but entertain as well. A series of close-ups of skin and scales stands on its own as a beautiful piece of art. Quotes from notable figures such as Henry David Thoreau, Norman Maclean, Zane Grey, and Charles Darwin flow along with the hand-lettered text. Learn about subjects as varied as the breathing and sleeping patterns of our underwater friends to the taboos associated with certain types of sea creatures. Koch blends equal parts science, nature, and art, then sprinkles in a dash of humor to create this lovely volume.
