Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sandcastles is the ultimate guide to the ultimate summer pastime--playing in the sand. Featuring the wonderful photographs of Frankie Frankeny (Snowmen), Sandcastles includes over 30 sand sculptures from the whimsical to the majestic, complete with easy-to-follow instructions. Adults and kids can work together to create gloriously impermanent structures by the sea--or even in a backyard sandbox. Pass the time with an ancient sundial. Sail alongside the seas in a sand schooner. Sunbathe with a mermaid. Put up a beach house for your lazy pup. Or for the truly ambitious, recreate some northern Spanish architecture with a rendition of the Gehry Bilbao Guggenheim. For sand sculptors young and old, this delightful volume is filled with the joys found in a summer day in the sand. Sandcastles is a joint project with the non-profit Leap Foundation, which hosts a sandcastle extravaganza each summer, where artists, architects, and kids of all ages construct inspiring sand creations.
