Clear instructions and step-by-step color photos make it easy to achieve incredible results for building architectural marvels at the beach. 200 color photos.
Revisiting the Cape Cod beach where the first version of Sandtiquity was made in 1978, Malcolm and Kappy Wells and Connie Simo again show how easy and fun it is to build truly impressive "sand castles" in the forms of pyramids, ziggurats, cliff dwellings, hydroelectric dams, and Egyptian temple complexes. All you need are moist sand and a flat stick, then follow the simple instructions: pile the sand, pack it, and cut away what isn't part of the edifice. The authors also create natural formations like the Devil's Tower, and sweeping abstractions. The results are beautifully photographed in color, showing just how convincing the effect of miniature monuments can be."
