The Book of Pebbles

Dundee Contemporary Arts



This beautiful softcover book features writing by Christopher Stocks and artwork by Angie Lewin.

Part social history and part practical guide, in this book writer and pebble collector Christopher Stocks unearths the sometimes surprising story of our love-affair with pebbles, and considers how the way we see them today has been influenced over the years by artists, authors and even archaeologists.

Printmaker Angie Lewin is widely admired for her alluringly stylish images of the natural world. She celebrates the experience of walking and sketching along the British coastline, often incorporating pebbles in her limited edition prints and paintings. Many of these feature in the book alongside a series of new images.
