Inspired by the beach stalls and seaside shops of Cornwall, selling all essentials required for a day on the beach. The map of coastal Cornwall is collaged, along withhold postcards and text to do with the sea and fishing. Stamps from a postcard sent from St Mawes, and holiday brochures from Fowey are included, along with tide tables and newspaper articles. The collectors cards are all sea life seen along the coast.. some of which may be caught in a fishing net or seen in a rock pool.. There is one creature which may be slightly out of place.. a red herring which you generally wouldn’t see along the coast of England.. although, with a bit of imagination, and a big enough rock pool.. who knows..!?
