In this enchanting volume, beloved artist Lisa Congdon invites readers to take a delightful dip into the joy of swimming. Every page is filled with beautiful and thoughtful celebrations of getting in the water, and what makes it so cherished, meditative, and energising: from watercolour portraits paired with personal stories of how swimming has affected real people’s lives, to illustrated inspirational quotes, to collections of vintage ephemera and objects—colourful swim caps, bathing suits through the ages, traditional pool signs, and more—all interspersed with the inviting, clear blue waters of oceans, lakes, and swimming pools.
