About this project

This is a beautiful account of the landscape and people of Cape Cod. The black and white woodcut illustrations insisted on a monochrome binding. The image on the cover is taken from a photograph of moonlight over the sea taken while on holiday. The endpapers are adapted from a graphite drawing of the sea by Vija Celmins.
