100 Sounds to Seeby Marsha Engle
Synopses & Reviews
With all the distractions that are part of our waking hours, it is no wonder that the simplest sounds of an ordinary day are taken for granted. Sounds like the crackling of ice, raindrops on a rooftop, the crunch of toast as its buttered, and even turning the page of a book are so commonplace that we seldom--if at all--take time to appreciate them. Yet, when the ability to hear these everyday sounds is taken away--as in Marsha Engle's case--we are humbly reminded of their value.
As she was slowly losing her hearing, Marsha collaborated with photographer William Huber to capture these ordinary sounds in stunning photographs, and they have collected them here in this unique and breathtaking book for both the hearing and hearing impaired to enjoy. 100 Sounds to See is a tribute to the beauty of hearing and a gentle reminder to the hearing world to listen to and appreciate everyday sounds.
