The Seaweed Collectors Handbook - Miek Zwamborn
Seaweed troubled Columbus on his voyages across the Atlantic, intrigued von Humboldt in the Sargasso Sea, and has inspired artists from Hokusai to Matisse. This short, exquisitely illustrated book explores the history, culture and use of seaweed from the Neolithic people of the Orkney Islands to sushi artisans in modern Japan. Covering seaweed's collection by Victorians, its adoption into fashion and dance, and its potential for combating climate change, and with a fabulous series of recipes based around the 'truffles of the sea', this is a wonderful gift for every nature lover.
