Shore Style: Unburied Treasure

The Lure of Sea Glass is as seductive as its subject. Local author Richard LaMotte’s latest book on sea glass delves into the emotional, often spiritual, aspect of searching and finding. Sharing the first-hand accounts of fellow collectors, LaMotte illuminates the calming effects of beachcombing—the act of sifting through mental and emotional detritus while stumbling upon shards of the past that have been burnished into comforting gems. Occasionally, these finds become talismans, remembrances of inspiration and healing. Glowing images by Annapolis photographer Celia Pearson—all taken in natural sunlight—accompany the text. $29 at seaglasspublishing.com
