Snowy Owl Books
Join Julia Tinker—avid explorer, angler, and artist—in her travels as she recounts her multiyear journey captaining her boat through the beautiful waters surrounding Ketchikan and Prince of Wales. Her mission is to delve into the diverse ecosystems and catch fish and crustaceans for her gyotaku prints, a traditional Japanese art form using fish pressings painted over with watercolor.
This book is one of the few books on this popular art form. It is a visual adventure through gorgeous paintings and color photographs; a vibrant depiction of life at sea in southeast Alaska—as well as a celebration of the importance of marine life for the indigenous communities in the area.
