The Sea Around Us
To celebrate her solo exhibition, Green in the Grooves at Camden Art Centre, we offer Tamara Henderson's reading list exclusively selected by the artist.
Published in 1951, The Sea Around Us is a notable work about the natural world by Rachel Carson. It topped The New York Times best-seller list for thirty-one weeks and sold over a million copies, being translated into 28 languages. It inspired an Academy Award-winning documentary and won the 1952 National Book Award and the John Burroughs Medal. Carson's narrative is filled with vivid descriptions of the ocean's wonders. This book underscores the ocean's significance and vulnerability. It's a must-read for those passionate about the environment.
