    Full Description

    The beauty of the beach, surrounded by the unique lifestyle of beachgoers, complemented by special stories and extraordinary photos.

    The beach: this is always the place where we would most like to be. The view of the sea. The sound of the waves. The smell of salt water. This illustrated book portrays the beach as a place of longing, with brilliant photos and entertaining stories: How Coco Chanel invented the summer tan, how the special light on the coast inspired artists like Picasso, of the beauty of deserted beaches, of exclusive dream domiciles, of the iconography of the surfer and of the longest wave ride of all time. teNeues hereby presents the ultimate illustrated book about beach life. Beach villas and dream beaches are shown in exclusive portraits.

    Text in English and German.
