We're thrilled to highlight illustrator Jillian Ditner's new book The Beachcomber's Companion! While not quite pocket sized this smaller format book lends itself to being kept close at hand. Inspired by solitary exploration and 'long walks on the beach' this book is a charming reference any beach-lover would enjoy.
Author Anna Marlis Burgard draws readers in with her captivating writing while Jillian's exquisite talent is showcased in each hand-painted illustration. A technical illustrator at heart Jillian brings a precision and accuracy to these paintings. Using actual shells as reference Jillian infuses her reproductions with just the right amount of mystery and life.
