Spirals in Time

Seashells, a myriad of spiralling shapes following just a few simple rules of mathematics and evolution and the sculpted homes of molluscs, have fascinating tales to tell. This exuberant aquatic romp reveals amazing tales of these undersea marvels. From snails that 'fly' underwater on tiny wings and molluscs which will kill you if you stand too close, to the giant mussels with golden beards that were supposedly the source of Jason's golden fleece. Shells - the first jewellery and oldest currencies - have also played an important cultural role in human history, and the book also explores tales of the shells exchanged for human lives, tapped for mind-bending drugs and which act as bellwethers of our impact on the natural world.

Paperback, 7 3/4" h x 5", 289 pages, 33 colour and 13 black and white illustrations.
