Guide to Beach Litter, Barton, Julia & Dr Phillip Cowie
15 Barton, Julia & Dr Phillip Cowie Guide to Beach Litter
Littoral Art Project 2016 First Edition Folded information sheet New 
A large illustrated folded card pamphlet. Closed, it measures 25cm x 16.5cm, but when fully opened 25cm x 99 cm. A detailed guide to plastic, metal, ceramic, wood, glass, rubber etc. Postage will be reduced. [Julia Barton's current work reflects her grave concern regarding the dangers of plastic within the environment. The installation Neo Terra, presented as part of the Littoral Art Project, investigates the critical issue of plastic marine and beach litter. Plastic in all its forms is weaving itself into the fabric of the earth’s ecosystems and earth itself, silently burying within because little is being done to prevent or manage it. The stark prediction is it will provide a future legacy and record of our human interaction with the earth - an environmental catastrophe in waiting. This exhibition is the culmination of 3 years research and development of the Littoral Art Project which is gradually working its way along Scotland’s coastline beginning in Ross-shire.]

Aldabra Alone, Beamish, Tony
16 Beamish, Tony Aldabra Alone
London George Allen & Unwin Ltd 1970 0045910138 / 9780045910137 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Illustrated, pp 222, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper. [Aldabra is the world's second-largest coral atoll. It is situated in the Aldabra Group of islands in the Indian Ocean that are part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. Uninhabited and extremely isolated, Aldabra is virtually untouched by humans. It has distinctive island fauna including the Aldabra giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea). It consists of four islands around a large shallow lagoon, encircled by fringing coral reef. The atoll reflects both fossil and geomorphological features, the former is the source of the biodiversity seen today. The atoll has the largest population of giant tortoises in the world (about 100,000 animals). Sir David Attenborough called Aldabra "One of the wonders of the world", and it is also known as one of "crown jewels" of the Indian Ocean. Aside from its vast population of tortoises, it is also the largest raised coral reef in the world with an elevation of 26 feet (7.9 m); and the second largest atoll in the world after Kiritimati Atoll. Aldabra has a large population of the world's largest terrestrial arthropod, the coconut crab; and hosts the white-throated rail, the only surviving flightless rail species in the Indian Ocean. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1982, it is one of the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Seychelles.]
