The Curious World of Seaweed


Advance Praise

“A mesmerizing swim through a liminal world.” - Barbara Kiser, Nature

“Who knew seaweed portraiture could probe the deepest mysteries of existence? Josie Iselin’s wonderful new book explores a world just below the surface. One wonder is that seaweed performs such a vital role in the ecosystem, literally helping power life on Earth. Another wonder is its shape-shifting colors and crazy symmetries, which Iselin’s singular photography pops to life. Her text puts seaweed in a historical framework full of surprising stories. The result is an adventure through art, science, and pure pleasure.”
